Hi Trevor,
Just to remind you about the caretaker of Caloundra between about 1946 to 1952. He was my grandfather and his name was Walter Goode Vernon POWELL.
He lived in (lower) Gay Terrace and I can remember the alarm bell in the house if the power went off.
I hope to get down there one weekend to have a look around and meet you and the others.
 Regards
 John Campbell
