Below is a description of the above photo at the display at Dom Dom saddle on the Black Spur.

This tower no longer exists. It was a small tree tower immediately north of the central - northern boundary of the Maroondah Water Catchment. It was a secondary tower with provision for AM radio contact with Mt. St. Leonard.

Mt. Dom Dom in 1951. Photo was supplied

Note the cabin improvement and a new ladder.
Mt. Dom Dom in 1920s. Photo obtained in March 2022 from the Healesville & District Historical Society
and used with permission. We have no further evidence or documentation about the tower in the 1920s.
The description with the 1920s photo from the Healesville & District Historical Society stated: The Lookout, Mt. Dom Dom, Narbethong. With the tall trees in the background, we are not sure if it actually was a fire tower or a scenic lookout tower, looking down into Narbethong and towards Marysville.
