This photo of the old Tooborac General Store, taken about 1912, is one of hundreds in the History of Tooborac group’s archives.
The History of Tooborac group will hold an Open Archive Day on Sunday, March 9, at Tooborac Primary School from 1pm, until 5pm.
The group has been collecting scanned copies of photos and documents to preserve stories of the district. The area covered includes Tooborac, Emu Flat, Nulla Vale, Glenhope East, Baynton East, Panyule, Dairy Flat, Majors Line, Black Springs, Pyalong and all districts in between.
Group spokesperson Eleanor Dempster said the archive currently held about 400 copied images and documents.
‘‘We hope to capture more of these stories at the open archive day and to identify more faces in the images currently held,’’ she said.
‘‘Everything starting at yesterday is history and each resident, past or present, has a snapshot of their district that is unique.
‘‘So just as we hope to see some 19th century photos and documents, we are also happy to add more recent images to the collection.’’
