Description:

Scarce engraving of the Bass River saw mills at Queensferry showing timber being transported on a tramway, loaded onto wagons which are pulled by horses; behind the tramway is a steam-powered saw mill belonging to Messrs. Crump and Grant; the houses of the workers are in the background. The mills in Bass River employed 25 men and 620,000 super feet of timber went out of the area each year. Much of the timber panelling in the early Melbourne buildings came from the Bass Hills.
