On The Calder - Tivey's House "Nimmitabel" by 

Best viewed large by clicking on image.
This old home was built for Joseph Tivey in 1879 at a cost of 1,300 pounds.
Located just up from the Calder Hwy in the rural goldrush town of Inglewood in Central Victoria, Joseph & his wife had 14 children whilst running the local Merchandise and Liquor store…..
This home is now privately owned

Taken with a p&s Panasonic Lumix FZ30, with just a touch of hdr.


I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Awesome capture and love the color and detail. Has a awesome mood associated with it. well done and a great read !!

  • Thanks Sean.
    The town of Wedderburn in Victoria, is like a town in California, as both goldrushes were happening about the same time, and both were very similar living conditions.

    What a gorgeous home!! 14 kids back in 1879? Amazing story!!

  • They probably would have been Catholic.
    14 in today’s society would be unheard of.

    Great work Larry!! That would have been a small fortune back then!

  • Your right.
    But with a wife & 14 kids to house, he would have been desperate.
