Thursdays Special: Traces of the Past Y3-05

Traces of the Past
My little piece of history may be thousands of years old as the Aboriginal culture is the oldest culture in history. I discovered these artifacts on my property many years ago. On a walk with friends I first came upon the stone hand axe or cutting tool. The photos don’t really show the sharpness the edge. When I first picked the tool up, it fitted into my hand so wonderfully well.

The second discovery was made a while later. It is the stone that was used to chip off bits of stone to make the hand axe possibly. Again the smooth roundness of the back fitted into my hand perfectly.

It is great that some of the cars of yesterday still exist. Wouldn’t you love to drive this old Ford?

The McKay Petrol engine made in Australia in around 1913 was used on farms for anything you could think of. The engine was running, you can see the wheel spinning in the photo.
