Western Queensland Road Trip – Square Tops Challenge #3
At first glance this small hut outside the Morven Historical Village looks like any other old slab hut. Look closer and you’ll see it’s not made of timber – the shingles are tin.
During the Great Depression, thousand of Australians lost their jobs and their homes. For many families huts built out of flattened kerosene tins were a cheap alternative. Kerosene tins were plentiful and construction was simple.
With a dirt floor and no lining on the walls, daily living in a hut like this would have been hard but at least it gave a family shelter.
While our travels are on hold, I’m joining in every day with Becky’s April Square Tops Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme word “top”.
