Old Glen Innes Rd: Dalmorton Part 1

In 1871 Dalmorton came alive to the sound of the fossickers pick, gold had been discovered and a reef declared!
The town was quickly transformed into a typical gold rush town of slab huts, stables, coolie labourers, noise, gambling, drinking and violence. At its height Dalmorton had around 3,500 inhabitants today it is 0! 
It is a classic ghost town with a couple of buildings still remaining. This week I will will show images from this very remote location on the old road to Glen Innes.
