Howie's Hostel Camp 1923-1927

Posted on April 16, 2012 at 8:40 PM

In early 2012 a photograph found in the Canberra & District Historical Society collection showed in the background two trees that I recognised.  This led to the knowledge of the site of not only the cubicles, but the Mess and other buildings on the site.  The area is in Block 3 Section 128 Stirling Park, Yarralumla Canberra.  The sites of the 25 two and three bedroom cottages in the settlement have survived. They are on the hill above the Hostel Camp along either side of a 19th century track that still crosses the hill.  The men of this camp built the Hotel Canberra - originally known as Hostel No 1 - built to house federal politicians and other VIPs.  Contractor John Howie & Sons was a Sydney firm who continued to build other buildings in Canberra.

Travailleur indépendant depuis 2005 et véritable autodidacte, j'ai appris à créer des sites internet, les héberger sur le web et les positionner en 1er page des moteurs de recherche. J'ai fait du référencement ma spécialité et ma passion !

Mon parcours sur internet commence en 2005 sous le statut EURL par la création et la gestion complète de plusieurs sites e-commerce de prêt à porter, high tech, produits bio etc...

Mais le référencement internet et la programmation pour le web me plaisaient bien plus que la vente et les relations clients. Je me suis donc reconverti en 2008 dans l'affiliation et le Black Hat SEO. Date à laquelle je créais également mon agence de référencement google ce qui m'a permis un partenariat durable avec la société américaine SEOW.

J'ai lancé le projet Content-Spinning.fr qui permet de dupliquer votre contenu sans faire de duplicate content, le réseau Wpmu-Creator.com qui propose d'utiliser un très large réseau de blog et GHSTools.fr qui permet de gérer automatiquement le référencement de milliers de sites.

Фитнес - это система физических нагрузок, направленная на укрепление тонуса мышц всего организма.

стретчинг, аэробика, воркаут и даже стрип - пластика также относятся к общему определению ,,fitness,, .
Существует разные классификации этого спорта, но их определяет общая цель – развитие мускулатуры,
