Photo a day 83 - Our World Tuesday
Here is another old place in the area. This one is just down the road and some years ago was used in a movie by the South Australian Film Corporation. Howver, I have no idea what the movie was and the house has fallen more and more into disrepair as the years go by.
Interestingly, the film company called in to see us, wanting to borrow one of our goats for the movie. Had to refuse them as it would have required one of us being there to care for the goat and we were both working full time and could not get time off. Pity, it might have been the beginning of a career as an animal trainer for films!!!
I think the original building was the middle part where the stone chimneys are. That part would have been local stone. The wooden building on the right was probably added later. The existing solid stone building was probably a barn or stable. Not sure as it has no real windows, just that one round one.
I keep meaning to ask the neighbours whether they have any information on the history of the place, but never think of it when I see them.. Must do it soon!! Not enough is recorded abou these old buildings in this area and I am not sure how to go about finding what may be on record.
