Gawler Ranges Trip, South Australia "part three"

Click for 468kb image

Visiting the Siam Station shearing shed brought some wonderful memories of my childhood back. I was disappointed though to find that the old shearing plant had been dismantled for a new one before I managed to get a snapshot of what it used to look like. The shearing boards were very silent but gee I do remember the hustle and bustle of people working and the sheep moving around in their yards as well as the diesel engine running the shearers plant along with many other sounds that happen during shearing, some of which consisted of swear words when things did not go right. Oh what memories!!! lol

Can't have a shearing shed without the old cane basket.

Walking inside the sheep pens at the back of the shearing shed where there are many windows for ventilation; a picture framed says a thousand words of how good the scenery is when this recent trip was made down memory lane.
