I’ve been posting images of Broken Hill just lately and tonight I’m uploading one of the street behind the railway line just back from the main drag. Remember that Broken Hill is a mining town famed for its prodigious output of silver…. originally known as Silver City it was a town dominated by two big hills which were both extensively mined….. evenuatally one of those hills collapsed…. leading to the renaming of the metropolis as Broken Hill….. because they broke the damned hill getting all the loot out……..love that story…..
Anyway its a facinating place to visit with a marvellous desert landscape to luxuriate in and mines to visit and ghost towns close by and you can even go out with the postie and help deliver the mail……. but even if you just want to walk around and chill out in the urban landscape then this image is what you can expect to see…… a very nice and totally charmingly artistic slag heap by the main road……. well they have to put the dead dirt somewhere…… may as well be on the street for the tourists to look at……. works for me……..:)
