2018 August David Jobson wrote: "BTW my dad, Walter Henry Jobson was the school  teacher at Erigolia from 1926 - 1929, the same period that  the bank’s  Erigolia Receiving Office opened! There’s not much at Erigolia now, however the general store is still there and the only building, it’s still in fair shape. That store was where my mother came to work as a 17 year old from Sydney and met my father and the rest is history!"
