Blown Away

How's this for a variation on my usual abandoned buildings?


  1. And this one is not as old as some ... I say that because of the timber frame. I wonder when the settlers made that transition - from double brick to timber?

    That bluff is surely handsome, and to position a home within its lee shows a wonderful feel for nature.

  2. As far as I know the choice of brick vs timber was based on what was the building material most readily available.

    There is a photo of the Turon River coming up later in this series that has a bluff like that ... it made for a very nice shot.

  3. oh wow, that's great. I like the debris scattered around the building.

  4. I can't tell how big it is but it looks like it met its match. From a scenic point of view it's a grand view.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
