The Count

By Joeblowfromoz
Thanks again for previous comments and votes on my images - really, really appreciate it - have had so much trouble with internet connection, but finally all sorted now.

This image is something a bit different. This is inside The Annabranch Shearing Shed. This shearing shed was built in 1896 and is situated about 20 kms from Wentworth in NSW - Australia. The interior is pretty much as it was when built, made out of the local Mallee Timber and probably why it has lasted so long. Originally a 24 stand shed - run on generator power and then converted to electric 12 stand shed.

I have titled this "The Count" as the board on the left of the image, shows the shearers names and how many sheep they shore for the day - big money in shearing these days, but boy do they earn it.

Will show other images of the outside of the shed in the next couple of days. It is very original.
