Year that was 1915
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.
