Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things to Drive
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

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.
The Miners Store – Inverell has a mining history since Diamonds were discovered in 1875 and later Sapphires

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
