Learn about NORCO’s part in Byron’s past

BYRON Bay Historical Society's third monthly history reminiscing session will be held from 10.30am-12pm on Monday, June 15 at the Byron Bay RSL Club.

This month's presentation and discussion will be about NORCO, its history and impact on the town from 1895 up until 1975.

"Norco and the dairy industry played an important part in the early development of the North Coast," said Byron Historical Society vice-president Donald Maughan.

"During that time many hundreds of Byron and district families had connections with NORCO and we invite locals who may have a connection with NORCO to join the discussion of our history.

"Come and find out what were the early technology developments that enabled this to happen.

"Why NORCO located in the Bay and what was the link between the RSL building, the Arts factory building.

"And why are all the pigs in the photo (above) surrounding the water tower at the railway station in the 1930's?
