Yarraville History https://www.victorianplaces.com.au/yarraville A railway stopping place was opened in 1871. The first church in Yarraville was opened by the Methodists (1870), whose hall was the location of a primary school in the following year. Increasing population required the opening of a replacement Common School in 1875, the site of the State primary school (1875-1995). By 1880 Yarraville was an increasingly attractive site for factories, served by the railway and the river for the movement of goods. In 1873 Joshua Bros opened a sugar works, and in 1875 it was bought by the Victoria Sugar Co when its Port Melbourne refinery was burnt down. In 1875 James Cuming rebuilt an acid works factory which had been burnt down after operating for four years. It went on to become the Cuming Smith acid, fertiliser and chemical works, producing superphosphate and diversifying into a large wood distillery factory at Britannia Creek in the Yarra Ranges. Ultimately Yarraville's frontage to the river also included a box factory, the Mount Lyell Chemical Works, Bradford Cotton Mills and a jute works. All were large. http://www.emelbourne.net.au/biogs/EM01667b.htm In 1872 three Scottish migrants formed Cuming Smith & Co. to purchase the acid works and they subsequently acquired the Victoria Bone Mill. In 1887 the Yarraville refinery became the Melbourne base of the Colonial Sugar Refining Co. Most of the workers in these enterprises lived locally, as did some owners and managers, who gave a lead in community life: James Reid of Macmeikan & Co., James Cuming and his son James of Cuming Smith, and John Campbell and his son Edward at the refinery. To defend and advance his business interests against critics of air pollution, Cuming entered Footscray Council as the representative for South Ward, and became a champion of the noxious trades lobby.
