Notes
View from the south looking towards Springbank and Black Mounntain. Trees surrounding the homestead are visible in the centre and haystacks are on the right. Gordon Kaye, whose family farmed Springbank as a dairy from the 1920s onwards, has provided a typed description of the property on the back of the image. See also the 'Springbank' file in 'Properties, Place and Suburbs'.
The Springbank property is covered by Lake Burley Griffin although the homestead site is commemorated by Springbank Island.
