History Behind the Workers Wall : The concept of the Workers Wall was developed as part of the Midland Redevelopment Authority project to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the State and the centenary of the Midland Railway Workshops. All the bricks used in creating the walls were produced by the Hills Community Support Group (HCSG), a not-for-profit organisation that provides support and activities for youth at risk, people with disabilities and the frail aged.
