Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Made from Wood
A while ago we went to a town over the mountains, Inverell and went to the Pioneer Village. Many of the buildings have been saved and transported to the village for a living exhibition of the life and times in the 1800’s. “The Inverell district is in a fertile agricultural region which produces a wide range of crops, including wheat, barley, oats, sorghum, wine grapes and maize. There are also some mining activities with tin, sapphires, zircons and diamonds (mainly industrial) being found. Inverell is known as the ‘Sapphire City’ because of the sapphires that found throughout the local district, contributing to a major part of Australia’s sapphire production.” source Wikipedia
Here is a few of the things I found.
