Poppet Heads

Poppet Heads
Does anyone knows the locations of these 2 poppet heads in the Ballarat East section of this old panorama.

The first is a small one NNE of the fire station at about 1-2o’clock? Can you see it?

The other is a much larger one like the replica they have at sovereign  hill to the very east of the circle.

    Maybe if you go into the ballarat library and have a look at some old maps you might be able to relate them to this panorama…
