|All Saints, Lorne|
On my way out, I noticed that for a very reasonable sum, I could obtain a booklet entitled Pen & Ink Sketches of Lorne.
This is a fascinating publication! It was actually first printed in 1890 (but reprinted in 1985), and was marked as being in aid of the Building Fund of the Church of England, Lorne. I wondered if the proceeds of its continued sale over 120 years later were being similarly applied!
The booklet contains a number of interesting entries, including one on Teddy's Lookout. I've previously blogged on the reason why the lookout is so named, and the booklet agrees that the story about the donkey named Teddy is unfounded. In other words, even in 1890, the version about the donkey descending from the lookout at its own risk was being dismissed. Instead, it supports the more boring view that the lookout is named after an early cattleman who came to this point to watch out for stray beasts.
