Harriet, Caroline, and Harriet Mary Whitaker are shown in front of their home on Lofven Street. (A photo of their neighbors is here.)
Little Bendigo was the site of a small gold rush in the 1860s. It took inspiration from Bendigo, Victoria, an important gold mining boomtown of the 1850s. In 1881, the town’s name became Nerrina.
