Inland scenes

Bringing out some of my archive country photos, and modest dwellings. Not everything country, looks lush and green, or with rolling hills.

a little country church, complete with old washing machine tub for the gate-side planting

is the white door 'half' an extension maybe, on this renovators delight?

...and the rose bush at the verandah was beautiful, possibly thriving on neglect?

Many may lay claim to being 'The Smallest Library' - the width

and the depth.  It was a functional library too; shame it was closed on the day.  I'm just imagining being the librarian in a 40 degree celcius + heatwave.  Might be cooler sitting out under the tree.

I like your collection of the buildings. The laundry tub brought back memories.

These are really neat. I love driving through the country and getting pics of old homestead shacks, barns, etc. And that is one tiny library!

I love the little church and the gate. I also like the gate and the roses in the 3rd photo. Great rural photos.

Some interesting and sad buildings. I often think how great it would be if hoses could talk.

Surely this is a site well worth seeing.
