August 3 Workers wanted for Dunolly Knitting Mill

1947
A plea for more junior female labour for the Dunolly annex of the Maryborough Knitting Mills came from the superintendent Mr White.
Since it opened in 1944 the Dunolly mill has produced more than 300,000 garments, 21,000 for the army and navy, but more machinists are needed as they hope to install more machines.

If you look closely you can just see the "M" of the MKM logo (Maryborough Knitting Mills) above the word Dunolly.

Methinks you'd be hard pressed to install more machines in there today...
