The Turana Mural project was developed with youth trainees at Turana.
The name of the work was "Brunswick Images" and focused on the working class history of the area in which Turana was located.
Key research was provided by Bernie Barnes, a local historian who came from a radical family in the area.
The painting also pictured Barry York's parents, whose father had been a left-wing mayor of Brunswick in the early 70s, and an active organiser in the Maltese community.
His mother wrote a regular column for the local newspaper. The project was organised through the Turana Education Centre and supported by then principal Dick Umbers and
Turana superintendent Geoff Lyons.
One humourous note was that it was opened by Sir Zelman Cowen, the then Australian Governor-General (this wasn't long after Kerr's dismissal of Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam).
Not long before this, Geoff Hogg been named in the BLF Royal Commission although they had his name wrong and therefore didn't appear.
This didn't stop people in the BLF with a sense of humour, pinning up the newspaper article showing Geoff and GG Zelman Cowen on their office notice board with the large
heading "Governor-General's offsider named in Royal Commission".
