This Thursday evening, 4 February, 2016, I am delighted to be the guest speaker at the AGM of the Wentworth Historical Society, 5.30 pm at the Wentworth Shire Library
The topic for my presentation: Doctor Chenery and the death of Minnie Anspach at Lock 9 in 1923
This talk details how the workers at Lock 9 received medical attention from Wentworth’s well-known Dr Chenery in the early years of construction, 1922-1923 and how the tragic and untimely death of a young mother changed these arrangements. I will also outline other Wentworth connections with the construction workers at Locks 7 and 9, including stories associated with some burials at Wentworth cemetery.
Find out why Dr Chenery said: “During 25 years of practice I have never yet wished to attend anyone who did not want me.” (Dr Chenery, 16 September 1923.)
I hope to see you there if you are in the vicinity.
