Back in time

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.[12] 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.

Cee’s Black % White Photo Challenge: Bathrooms/Outhouses

On a recent mini holiday, we went to Inverell. Inverell has a Pioneer Village which has building and artifacts from the bygone era.

I though as I was back in time I should take some photos in black and white. Here are a couple of photos from inside the houses as they would have been in the 1800’s.
