Russell had the great pleasure of launching Neil Everitt’s hsitory of hydro-electricity generation on the Franklin River north of Toora (South Gippsland).

Neil’s book traces the history of this amazing accomplishment all those years ago, involving the excavation of a tunnel,  the building of a wier in order to divert the water to the turbines and disitribution to the neighbourhood.

A very well attended launch was held at the Foster museum which had prepared an exhibition to compliment the book.
