Another scene from early 1900’s around Gympie, Queensland.
I have left the space between the old tree in front of a Southern Cross windmill and the quaint farmworker’s outstation at Curra, blank, deliberately to accentuate the bleakness experienced working on the land around 1900’s.
No electricity, no running water, all buildings were built using hand tools, but they were built to last in those days. Nearly 100 years later it is still standing, derelict and neglected, a reminder of the days gone by. The journey to town to get supplies of flour and tea would have taken all day travelling on horseback or horse and sulky, even though it was only some 18 kilometers. If the trip was longer it would require staying in town overnight as there were no streets lights and roads were sometimes only a track, very easy to get lost.
