Dry seeding has become increasingly popular over recent years. The same was the case 100 years ago in 1915! Image an excerpt from "Carnamah Notes" in The Midlands Advertiser newspaper of 30 April 1915.

100 years ago today, on 11 May 1915, the Robertson, Bowman and Forrester families arrived in Fremantle on the steamship Osterley. The three families travelled together from Scotland to purchase Ready-Made Farms - the only instance of group migration to Carnamah from outside of Australia. For the full story, see out blog post at www.blog.carnamah.com.au/2015/05/group-migration-to-carnamah-in-1915.html

It's World Stationery Day... and no, we didn't make that up! Seems like a good time to share "The" Carnamah Writing Pad from 1920s Carnamah storeekeper Leslie Trotter. His shop continues today but is now known as Carnamah IGA! #WorldStationeryDay
