Chinese gold rush memories

Pottering along Victoria Street on a beautiful late autumn afternoon. I'm looking for the house of Henry Quock Ping who was a doctor of Chinese medicine here in 1873


Down in the former Main Street business area, the new memorial to the Chinese heritage of Ballarat is looking good. Hopefully it will be finished by Heritage Weekend.
