Plough

Yarrawonga and Mulwala Pioneer Museum , Mulwala

The Single Furrow Plough - Hugh Lennon began making ploughs in Carlton from 1860's. Within 10 years the patented steel plough, suitable to Australian conditions, was outselling all imported cast iron, mouldboard ploughs. Early settlers (1870's) used this type of plough pulled by one horse to prepare ground for wheat sowing. Being a wheeled machine it allowed the ploughman to sit on the plough and saves miles of walking.

Historical information

This plough was used by William Christians and John Holmes when they worked on the formation of Belmore Street, Yarrawonga
