Forgotten in the paddock

For Thursdays Special: Traces of the Past I am going back to the recent past as Australias history is just over 200 years.

A property near my place they have some implements that were used on the farm in the 19th Century.

It used to take 2 days to go to town by horse and cart. Now-a-days I can drive to town in 25 minutes

I think this was a stick rake. The seat doesn’t look very comfortable. It is similar to my tractor seat though.

It is a pity to see the wagon falling into disrepair. My Grandfather was a Wheelwright and would be disappointed to see this wagon like this.

The iron work is still in good order despite being out in the weather for quite a number of years
