Archives for Apprentice Carpenters/Builders
« on: Thursday 11 August 16 22:45 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Wondering if anyone could help me on this subject.   My father was a Master Builder, building homes around the north shore of Sydney, he grew up in Greenacre, near Sydney, b. 1913 .     Imagine he would have left school around 1927, so I am trying to find a register of apprenticeships for those days.
He never ever told us whom he was apprenticed to, or even whether in those days he would have attended  a Technical College in Bankstown/Greenacre area.
Look forward to any comments in this regard
Regards
janjim

Hi there,

Have you tried searching Trove?    Technical College results were published in late January of each year. 

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/16350707 28 January 1927 SMH here's a list of Examination Results for Technical Education.  It includes results in Carpentry.

Hi, I never thought of Trove, thanks for that.   Will check it out.   I don't know how many years they took to do their apprenticeships in those days, in 1927, he would only have been 14 years of age, so will have to do some searching for the next few year.

"he grew up in Greenacre, near Sydney, b. 1913"

Greenacre isn't near Sydney, it is a suburb of Sydney.

I went to Bankstown Tech in 1971. Maybe give them a call to see if they kept the records.

Did it exist back then? In 1970 I was at Ultimo Tech in the city, it was large and very old in structure.

I am not very good with Trove at all, I wonder if you were able to help me, looking for Edmund Walter New from 1927 through to 1935 I am guessing would be a rough estimate of when he did his apprenticeship.   Just don't know where he would have done it, maybe in Sydney, or closer to Bankstown in those days

Thank you Jamjar, yes I know Bankstown isn't near Sydney, it is a suburb, and in those days, early 1900's it was considered to be very rural.
Thanks for the website, will look at that too, yes I went to Sydney Technical College too at Ultimo, but back in 1958 !!  Remember it was a very dreary place for a 15 year old to go to each day.
