Evelyn Rains: My Inspiration

I owe my fascinEvelyn Rains aged about 7ation in Lock history to the stories my mother Evelyn told me when I was growing up about her childhood on the various locks where her father worked during construction. When the family were living at Lock 5, Evelyn and her brothers and sister wrote letters to the Children’s Column in the Renmark paper.One of them is attached for you to read, (1926 08 31) Today would be her 96th birthday and I honour her memory and the passion she instilled in me about our shared heritage.
