Guest speaker – Caylie Jeffery, author of Under the Lino

“When Caylie and David Jeffery renovated the house on the busiest terrace in Milton, they had no idea what treasures they would find secreted inside.  The intriguing discovery of 1950s money and bank books hidden under 60 years of old lino had Caylie turning to social media for help.

Who were Arthur and Eleanor Webster? Why were they hiding so much money? Who was Muriel White? Why was her bank book hidden in Milton when the address in the back said, “Bristol Street, West End”?

The trail of evidence leading from that dilapidated Queenslander revealed many secret stories … fraud, missing gravestones, theft, brothels and murder.”
