Summary

"William "Billy" Thomas Panlook first worked as a tobacco grower in 1890, in partnership with his three brothers. Their father was a survivor of the Buckland anti-Chinese riots in 1857. The brothers experimented with hop growing for many years without success, until pioneer dairy farmer Donald Gow imported a variety called Californian Clusters. The Panlook property Rostrevor soon became the largest producer on mainland Australia, under the stewardship of William Thomas Panlook."--Description supplied by photographer, see file 204/04/00122.
