Please don't pass the salt

(1975) Please don't pass the salt. The Pingelly-Brookton Leader, 10 December 1975. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Article discusses a booklet recently produced by Mr. Whittington, setting out the early history of 'Springhill' through the years of growing salt trees, efforts to discover the reasons and how the problem was averted and fresh water once again restored.
Mr. H.S. Whittington's property was described in the early 1900's as having splendid supplies for the stock while water abounds in many places, but with clearing and working the land progressed over the years, with stock numbers increasing, effects of salt encroachment had left its deadly trail.
Through 25 years of trial and error the determination was rewarded with success.
