Men working on the Goolwa Barrage c. 1920s
Before the barrages were built there were plenty of mulloway, but trading at the Goolwa Wharf ceased not long after the end of the Second World War. Val's husband worked on the barrages around the Goolwa district before the war.
Val remembers a row of small huts along the road near the Goolwa Barrage which were accommodation for married barrage workers only. These huts had names such as Hot as Zell, Windy as Zell, Sandy as Zell and so on. By the late 1970s only one of these huts remained and today there is no sign that they even existed.
