Giuseppe Minati

This week I received an email from Sandra Minati, who shared a little of her own family's story. I was thrilled to learn that Sandra's father knew my father and that we shared many of the same memories such as Christmas Parties and long periods of our fathers' absence. It was also heartening to learn that the project has brought some happiness and pride to Mr Minati and wish them both well.

I was so happy and excited to read your website on Transmission Lines as my father Giuseppe Minati worked with your father.

My father worked with your dad on the Channel 9 tower and at Port Kembla and also at Goulburn.

I am now sitting with him and showing him all the photos and videos and he is very excited and interested.

Even I understand like with you the hard work and commitment our fathers gave to the Company.  Dad is now looking at photos that he has kept on quite a few of his job sites and wow it is bringing back memories.

My mother at home looking after us three children on her own and Dad was away sometimes for months at a time.  We were always so excited to have him home even for a short time because he would have to leave soon after to complete another job.  

I remember Christmas Parties and I vividly remember the cooks in the kitchen serving up the food.Our fathers are heroes and I am very proud of him and they will leave a legacy.

Dad is now 90 years old and he has a big smile on his face right now.

Our fathers will leave a legacy and they have made a great contribution to this Country and we thank you very much for bringing the history of EPT to life on your website.

Take Care ...
Sandra Minati
