Motor Shed, Wynarka, South Australia

SOLD

49 x 59

We’d call it a garage today.

This house hadn’t been lived in for twenty years, we were told, and there were still bits of wind-blown washing on the clothes line left by its last occupants.

The back of the house is on the left, and the limestone structure on the right is an above-ground water tank, common on farms near here.

Steam Tug Yelta

SOLD

I’d had to take a bus-load of school kids to Port Adelaide on an excursion, and while the teachers took them to various places I was able to sit on a pontoon and paint this picture of the 1948 South Australian-built Yelta, with the steam engine originally intended for a naval Corvette.
