  1. A - Powell, Joseph - Horseracing
    List
    Public

    These items were used to form the basis of a submission to have Joseph (Joe) Powell inducted into the Tasmanian Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in 2015.
    Joe Powell (aka "The Village Blacksmith") was a prominent owner, trainer and (occasional) jockey from about 1875-1915. He raced horses on most of the many racecourses which existed in Tasmania at that time and won the major race held at most of them. He won the Launceston Cup and was placed second in the Hobart Cup on 2 occasions. He trained Sheet Anchor the year before it won the Melbourne Cup, Silvermine the year before it ran placings in the Melbourne and Caulfield Cups, and Blink Bonney before it won the Caulfield Cup The list is basically chronological but anyone interested should also refer to an obituary in The Weekly Courier of 4th March 1915 which is not on Trove but can be found at the Tasmanian LINC site. Powell also trained horses which won races in Victoria and was the leading Tasmanian trainer on occasions. He was particularly noted for his ability with jumpers and hurdlers. NOTE Since initially compiling this list I have added other items which require further correction and may not follow chronologically yet. I intend to fix these over time, and am including these and other information in a supplement I am producing as I do so. [Happy to give information on my HOF experiences as I have found them to be a tricky lot to work with]

  13. Munting - James - Horses - Desire
    List
    Public

    This is a list of articles referring to the racehorse DESIRE which was born at Calstock in 1910. Desire won major races in Tasmania including the Launceston and Newnham Cups of 1912, and the Youl handicap of 1914 and the George Adams Handicap of 1915. He won the 1912 VRC Newmarket Handicap and Bourke Handicap in Melbourne. The horse probably never reached its full potential due to illness in Sydney after the Melbourne victories. The Tasmania racing public took an interest in his recovery and he was a very popular horse there. Desire was sent to stud after finishing racing in 1916 and died at Calstock in 1930. This list was used as the basis of a submission to have him inducted into the Tasmanian Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame, which was successful in 2018. I am happy to talk to prospective submitters as I have found the HOF Committee to be tricky to deal with at times.

  25. Webster - JH Advertising
    List
    Public

    Examples of advertising for the sale of goods from the Yankee Notion Store Launceston. This store was operated by John Holland Webster (the younger).The store operated on the corner of Cameron and Charles Sts Launceston from 1852 until 1856. In May 1856 JH Webster opened a new store on the corner of Tamar and Cimetere Streets. This building included 2 attatched houses. Webster and his family lived in one and he rented the other one out. The store seems to have operated until about 1867. The building has recently (2012) been renovated and now houses a computer shop. The 2 houses have been amalgamated and now form an Asian restaraunt. (The compiler of this list had a meal in what was the original store when it was operating as an Indian restaraunt in the late 1980's). There is a photo of the then newly completed Albert Hall taken from this corner which includes a verandah above the original entrance to the store.
