It appears that the former Rootes factory in Port Melbourne is to be redeveloped.
Janet Bolitho of the Port Melbourne Historical Society writes:
The Rootes factory in Port Melbourne is soon to be redeveloped. We know so little about the factory.
It would be great if you could post this brief piece and ask people if they had anything to correct or to add.
We’d love to learn more detail about the cars manufactured there and the people who made them.

So hope to hear from you.
If anyone can help Janet let us know and it will be passed on.
