Artist's Description

Taken with a Nikon D60 at Blackall, QLD, Australia. This is the heritage listed building housing the old Wool Scour, all run on steam and still in use today. Basically it was for cleaning and grading the shorn wool in large quantities. It is the only one of it’s kind left in Australia and was opened in 1908 and operated until 1978, when it closed down and was left in ill repair. It has since been re-opened and restored and the tour guide takes you on a wonderful tour of the place which has a wool shed and all the old equipment still working. The bore you see out the front is a hot artesian bore and is used for washing the wool. You can also just see Alf the wonder tour guide dog who took us through the whole thing with his owner… a cutie and very friendly :) Well worth a visit :)
