Year that was 1915

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - LIFE -

The South Coffs Is­land Quarry was of­fi­cially in busi­ness in 1915, com­plete with a tram­line trans­port­ing rocks along the fore­shore to the pro­posed north­ern break­wa­ter.

Au­gust saw the com­ple­tion of the North Coast Rail­way Coffs Har­bour to Raleigh sec­tion. A pas­sen­ger ser­vice was the first train to use the new line, leav­ing Coffs on a Mon­day morn­ing and ar­riv­ing in Raleigh at 10.30am. The ser­vice be­gan to run three times a week, while pro­duce was also fre­quently hauled back and forth.

The Coffs Har­bour Ship­ping Com­pany was formed to run di­rect to Syd­ney and back five times a week. Mean­while, dis­cus­sions took place in May be­tween the Coffs Har­bour and Co­ramba But­ter Fac­to­ries re­gard­ing a pos­si­ble amal­ga­ma­tion into one en­tity.

The Orara Post Of­fice and a store were de­stroyed by fire.
