Sawmilling at Bellthorpe in the c1930’s for approximately 20 years.
From David Keir
The Osmond brothers Charlie and George had land situated at 379 Bellthorpe West Road Bellthorpe. The Osmonds cut flooded gum for fruit cases for Elimbah fruit growers for a short period in the 1930s.
From Les Osmond, son of Charlie Osmond
The mill also cut fruit cases that were sent to Stanthorpe. They were railed from the Woodford Railway.
