Always love a rusty roof

The old truck that has been in my street since I first moved here. Has since been moved to another property unfortunately. I liked it where it was.

Bloganuary – What was your favourite toy as a child?

I had a truck
it was a big truck
I was a small child
I would ride around on my truck
my mother said
I still have my truck
it’s made of pressed metal
the driver still sits proud
old and worn
but will always be loved

Boomaroo is an amalgamation of Boomerang and and Kangaroo. This one is from around 1955 or 1958. The trucks were made from 1955 to 1960. There is a similar one for sale on e-bay for $900

This is the information from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney about my truck

This is the one in the museum

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #168: Seen Better Days
Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares

Of course there has to be a song. This is an Australian song that was a big hit. I hope you enjoy it

First is the #PastSquare from the #RoofSquare

Onto a few things that have seen better days

An Australian made car from the 1950’s – a Holden FX

Would you ride this coach?

or go to town in this wagon?

This house is still much the same last time I drove past

Pompeii has definitely seen better days. Also from #SquareTime

This house too is still standing

The Colosseum is maintaining it’s better days appearance

The old truck that “lives” in my street

The remains of bird baths I’ve had over the years. Usually broken by possums trying to find a drink in droughts as I don’t think I have fat birds around here. This was from the #SquareUp

The feature photo is my old chook shed used in #RoofSquare

Re-living the past #4 – Old

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Old

For this photo in my series of Re-living the past was taken of the old truck that has been parked in the street ever since I first bought the property. When one of the nieghbours bought their place, they didn’t like the truck in front so it was dragged to another property across the road where an old tip was situated. When the person who bought that block, they moved it to the other block they owned in the street which I never knew happened otherwise I would have complained saying its the streets truck and belongs to no one. It should be back as a bit of street art I think.

Cee’s Mid-Week Madness Challenge: April Pick a Topic from my Photo

“The photo is of train going through Canby. What I like about this photo is the white cyclist’s helmet sitting on top of green bush.. The train is in motion. There is some graffiti on the train car and I live the message “We will deliver””

Here is what I found
