Hustler’s Line of Reef, as seen from Redan Mill, 1875

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3087C/4

Scope and Contents

186 x 129 mm. A view looking down on several mine-workings, with tall brick chimneys dotted over the landscape. The different holdings are identified in the key as The Hustler’s Tribute Company, The Great Extended Hustler’s Claim, Great Hustler’s Claim (late Latham and Watson’s), and the Old Hustler’s Claim. The mines represent some of the most productive mines in Bendigo (Hustler, the original owner of the mines died, true to tradition, without a shilling) and in 1875 the Hustler’s mine became the first in Bendigo to sink their shaft to 1000 feet.


  • Creation: 1875
