I’m pleased to advise that my free on-line research paper “The Nunawading Migrant Hostel” has now been published.
It describes, in pictures and text, the planning, history, evolution, and operations of the hostel, between 1952 and 1987, which was located on the west side of Rooks Rd and built on undeveloped bushland.
At its peak,.some 770 people were accommodated there.
The article will appeal and be of interest to anyone who stayed, lived, taught, or worked at the hostel or who was associated with it.
Ii is a multi-page searchable website, containing many images, maps, aerial photos and pictures of life in the hostel, with descriptive text.
Comments may be made at the Guest Book, on the website.
