This is what is left of the

Misery Creek Bridge.

It was still intact, I’m told, until a couple of years ago.

A sizeable tree landed on it, just to camera right,

and that was the end of the majority of the bridge.

 

 

Thought it a good subject for weathered and worn.

~~~~~

Recently a group of us visited Smythesdale

for our bi-monthly lunch.

In the main street I found a Masonic Hall.

Not sure if it is still in use but at No. 40

must be one of the earliest in Australia.

The Chinese were another major part

of our gold mining history.

Ah Woa was in big trouble for

not having paid for a mining licence.

Some things never change, do they?

 

 

Just a little further down the road was

the Smythesdale Post Office,

operational for just over a century

according to this sign.

 

 

 

 

It appeared to have a magnificent backyard.

However, it appeared to be a private residence now

and there was no sign of anyone to ask.
