Heritage house, Broken Hill
I don’t normally photograph normal housing but I make an exception here because it’s not normal to my eyes. Many of the older houses are clad in corrugated iron.
While corrugated iron roofs are common throughout Australia and I’ve often shown corrugated iron buildings on farms it’s unusual in a city. I understand that it’s light weight and easy to construct, a good thing when far from the sea or a navigable river and there’s no decent timber for miles and miles.
