Clyde North School to the rescue.
In the late 1960's early 1970's an adventurous young school teacher, James O'Shea took his students on a Clyde History journey. He documented the history of the school in an A3 sized scrap book and wrote the text which is recorded on the Clyde History website.
Mr Jim Lineham became the valuable source of information supplying photos and details.
Mr O'Shea drew a map where the meteorite was found in 1853. In 1971 Mr D. J. Mickle took the photographs shown below.
