Kiln and Shed, Wynarka, South Australia

48 x 59

Wynarka’s a tiny settlement on the grain-railway between Tailem Bend and Loxton.

The nearer structure was a lime kiln, built to turn the local limestone into the quicklime that was then mixed with sand in the early days, to make mortar.

The kiln itself was built of the same materials, and among its first products would have been the quicklime for the dis-used shed beyond.
