I love this old corrugated iron building. This type of Australian architecture is so unique and very worthy of preservation! It captures a quintessential aspect of life 100 years ago, making do!
This is the house/barn at the rear of Wing Hing Long Department Store in Tingha (see Saturdays post). Upstairs was the home of Jack Joe Lowe, and later on his daughter Mavis Pratt. Downstairs was agricultural storage and also sleeping quarters for the Chinese employees.
An interesting aspect of this photo is the later addition of a bathroom that has was constructed by infilling the verandah with a small fibro (another fantastic Australian building product) room. Underneath the water tank is the outside toilet (dunny), also in glorious corrugated iron. I suspect however, that the 'throne' is Doulton!
Its not quite a barn but its also more than just a house. To see other Barns at Trish's fantastic meme please click here.
