Personal Stories of Life in Altona and Laverton

When COVID restrictions prevent us from getting about we turn to projects that we can do at home or online, which is what a number of our members are currently undertaking. We recently received an email from a former resident of Altona who is currently living in New South Wales and is now 80 years of age and wanted to tell her families time at the Wiltona Migrant Hostel that occupied an area near the Williamstown Racecourse. While we are currently recording this fascinating insight into the early 1950’s we began to think about others who, over the years, have written about their time spent in Altona and Laverton. If you have any of these  family recollections or know of someone who would like to record these we would love to hear from you.
