Ho Way's map of where he planned his market garden in Ballarat, 1897.
In Ballarat in 1897, Ho Way put in an application for a Residence and Business Area along the Yarrowee near Humffray Street, in 1897, which was a popular area for market gardens.
The attached map outlines Ho Way's planned garden boundaries. It includes Chinese numbers and English text.
The area Ho Way wanted was quite near the former Woollen Mills in central Ballarat on the Yarrowee River.
Today there is no trace of the gardens, buildings, dams or fences, that existed in Ho Way’s day.
