It seems that quarries haven't always been unwelcome in this area - this is a report form the Bunyip Free Press of December 31, 1914. Granite from Tynong was used in the construction of the Shrine of Remembrance

This tragic report was in the South Bourke and Mornington Journal on December 24, 1914. Sadly for this little girl, strychnine used to be readily available and was used in many households, I presume, for rodent control. The little girl was called Olive and she was the daughter of Emanuel and Elizabeth (nee Black) Metzenthen.
