If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Between 1947 and 1952 the Commonwealth Government built 364 demountable homes in what, at that time, was Canberra's outlying southern suburb of Narrabundah. The basic family homes, located on land between Matina Street and Kootara Crescent, were prefabricated at the Rhodes (Sydney) factory of Tulloch Engineering, the frames railed to Canberra and erected on prepared footings. Contractor John Grant and Sons built the first 180 pre fabs, with Simmic and Company a later contractor.
