Old Shearing Shed
You can almost hear the bleating of sheep as they go into the shearing shed while the shearers worked briskly to shear the wool off thousands of them. It was back breaking work in the olden days but I think even nowadays it still is. Even with modern machines all the sheep have still to handled individually & carefully. Every station would be busy doing this. Then & now wool was big business. Truly, australia's fortune was built on the back of the sheep.
