COLO. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 4 July 1902
GOLO. 1 am told that thora is a p^bability of Mr. W. Moran's wharf bein&*made the top wharf in Colo-the g.Teat terminus of Colo navigation. TL16 would be a good thing for the trading boats, as the channel above Moran's is impeded by numerous sand bars, which block navigation when the tide is low.' But, then, if the wharf be shifted to Moran's, the Upper dolo people will have about two miles further to draw their produce, and no doubt some of them think they have quite far enough to draw at present. Some of the Wheeny settlers bring their produce to Mr. Moran's wharf. In consequence of the exceptionally light crops of maize and citrus fruits, the present is an exceedingly bad time for the river trading boats. Some trips they have scarcely any produce at all' on. board. The fact is, there are too many at it ; if there was one boat, instead of two, running in con nection with the Sydney-going steam ers, then she would do a fair trade ; aaajpr°bably we would have a steamer runni...
