24th May: Geoff Huntington: Holtermann’s Gold

‘Lane Cove Historical Society is pleased to welcome Geoff Huntington as our guest speaker May 24th. Geoff, who is the editor of the North Shore Historical Society Journal will be talking about ‘Holtermann’s Gold’. Bernhard Otto Holtermann was an adventurous young German who arrived in Sydney in 1858. After some difficult years, Holtermann and his partner Louis Beyers, found a huge gold nugget.  Holtermann went on to live a life of luxury, becoming a successful businessman. Among his many interests, he helped to finance a project to photograph NSW. The negatives were found some years after his death and they are now stored at the NSW Library as the Holtermann Collection. The meeting will be held at Lane Cove Library at 7pm on Tuesday May 24th. A gold coin donation for supper is welcome but not necessary’.
