The Pot Calling the Kettle Black and “as for those two rusty old pans I wouldn’t be seen dead on a tree stump with them!”
More 19th Century memorabilia in the Rogers Pioneer Cottage at Churchill Island, Victoria, this time in the kitchen.
John Rogers arrived in Sydney from Cornwell England in 1838 and after trying his hand during the Gold Rush returned to the Western Port region. He became the legal owner of Churchill Island on January 15th 1866 for the sum of two hundred and ten pounds. He lived here with his wife Sarah and their three children two of whom were born here. Rogers first built a cottage for his family and later another adjoining the first. The fact that these two cottages still stand today is a testament to his building skills and hard work.
Taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1 point & shoot in January 2011.
