ABOUT THE ART

This fuel tanker was used by the Australian Armed Forces in America during WW2 to supply valuable fuel in fighting Japan and is now part of our heritage.

The photo was taken at Old Tailem Town Pioneer Village in South Australia.

First established in 1982, Old Tailem Town is now Australia’s largest pioneer village, visited by tourists all over the world! There are over a hundred and ten buildings for you to visit, all furnished within their periods in their most natural locations.

Many of the buildings were transported in one piece from their original locations, while others were taken apart plank by plank and rebuilt in Old Tailem Town. Most of the buildings are over one hundred years old and are the same in appearance as they were when they were first built. They are all furnished with original artefacts as if they were being lived in a century ago. Shops are stocked with original items, packets and hardware. The emporium is over one hundred and twenty feet long and has four different departments with flying fox, money exchanges and the picture theatre is one hundred years old and houses sixty-five year old working projectors and is fully functional as a theatre with seventy seats. We have a collection of antique speed-boats, dating from 1905, including the worlds first hydroplane, made by Thorney Croft and his first four cylinder engine, known as ‘experimental one’.

The town has Thiry shops, catering for everything imaginable. The village is now at the stage where it’s hard to think of what else to create in a town of its era. The oldest building is a ticket office from the first exhibition grounds in Adelaide and it dates from 1870, along with the school that dates from 1881. Most buildings were built before the turn of the twentieth century.

This is a stunning exhibition of one man’s dream to bring the1800s and early 1900s re-created in Australia’s heritage to be enjoyed by all ages!

Thank you Catherine. I think my new uploads are getting out to the S6 Group? I haven't been in there much due to my day job being so busy of late, thanks so much for you're support:)
Chris' Landscape Images of Aus… commented on August 31, 2012 5:27pm
Yeah you would enjoy this magnificent place Meg! Maybe one day several S6ers can all put into a kitty and fly on down, I could arrange things from this end, I like the idea even if it doesn't happen! Thanks so much for you're comment:)

Texaco sent me an email, said they weren't interested! That's the last time I buy petrol from them, if they were in Australia, bloody snobs :P
