An iconic church, St. Carthage in Silverton, New South Wales, Australia.
Silverton has starred in countless films, television shows and commercials in all mediums.
Nestled in the Far West outback of New South Wales, Silverton was built by miners in search of fortune.
Once a bustling home to 3,000 people, residents began to leave in the 1880s when the nearby mines of Broken Hill surfaced. Many took their houses with them.
These days less than 50 people call Silverton home and only a handful of buildings dot the landscape.
There are several art galleries in and around Silverton ~ with one famous one having a collection of artistically painted Volkswagen Beetles outside. Seeing this VW parked here, with the words “St. Carthage” painted on the front door gave me the idea for the title of this image. Not sure if it’s parked here for effect or if it is driven.
