iHistory Excursion 2007

We just recently completed the excursion using podcasts to learn about 4 historical sites in Bendigo: the old gaol, Sacred Heart cathedral, statues in the CBD and Victoria Hill mining site. We skipped the Joss House, as 4 places is more than enough.

Thanks to the folks at Future Connections for showing us through the gaol, and to the teachers who supervised. Here’s just one photo – of Macauley giving John Quick (one of Federation architects) some loving attention.

  1. Dear Dave,

    I have noticed that you are publishing full size photos to this blog. For example the photo above is 1,909 KB and 2272 x 1704 pixels large!

    Using a fantastic free program see:

    I did a quick screen capture of the image from your Blog and it reduced the size to only 29 KB and 303 x 227 pixels

    You could also use another free program IrFanVew to resize the image before you upload it. See my IrFanVew notes online at:

    Click to access IrfanView-15.pdf

    They explain how to resize and crop images.

    All the best,
