Photographer's Note

Please open both photos in new tabs for the better versions.
The old shearing shed (wool shed) in Kinchega NP now has quite a good shearing related museum display.
In the early days of mechanical shearing everything was powered by big steam engines. The 2 steam engines in this photo were used to power shearing in this shed.
In the WS is a photo of an old wool press for compacting wool into bales for transport and another one showing an old locally built wagon with wooden wheels (!) used to carry the bales of wool to the river to load onto river boats.
Taken under dark skies with rain coming shortly afterwards.
