The Royal Hotel at Linda finally closed in the 1950s
North Mount Lyell
There had been a location or community high on the ridge between Mount Owen and Mount Lyell above the Linda Valley to the west known as North Mount Lyell and in Blainey's The Peaks of Lyell, the photograph has the caption "The site of North Lyell town, blasted away to form the modern open cut".
When North Mount Lyell was taken over by Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company in 1903, Linda was quickly reduced in significance. Eventually most residents moved to either Gormanston, or Queenstown the nearby Mount Lyell towns.
Linda Post Office opened on 18 December 1899 and closed in 1966.
