Gates commemorate Hugh Victor McKay, founder of the Sunshine Harvester Works.
Hugh Victor McKay was born 21 August 1865, and grew up on a farm in Drummartin near Elmore, Victoria.
Driven by frustration with the slow and laborious nature of farm work, and fueled by a persistent and inventive mind, McKay searched for a better and more efficient way of harvesting wheat. At the age of 18 he developed the Sunshine stripper harvester, a machine which revolutionized farming.
