Established by John Scurr Busby in the 1860s, Peninsula Tannery was located on the bank of South Creek in the 19th century and was noted for its production of quality leather suitable for the manufacture of a variety of products. Busby operated a very successful business and by the 1890s employed at least a dozen people. The tannery expanded production again in 1895 and was then taken over by F B Anschau in 1906, operating for over a century on the same site.
