Greenvale Sanatorium and Water Supply

These sections are based on primary sources, but mention should be made of the chapter "Former Greenvale Sanatorium" in the Hume Heritage Study by David Moloney and Vicki Johnson, published by the City of Hume in 1988. This detailed study cites the Essendon Gazette a number of times, but unfortunately all the footnotes incorrectly refer to the same article. Since wading through reels and reels of microfilm is not my idea of fun, I have consulted instead newspapers which have been digitized and made searchable by the National Library, principally The Argus. The Essendon Gazette had not been digitized at the time of writing.
