Artist's Description

Limited Edition Size : 300 prints only
Available for Purchase : www.chrismunngallery.com

This quaint little cottage is a relic from a way of life that has long been forgotten. Located on the Barleyfields Road railway crossing at Arding on the New England Tablelands, it was once home to the crossing’s gatekeeper and his family. The gatekeeper was responsible for the operation of the crossing’s timber gates. Whenever a train was scheduled to pass through the crossing, he would close the gates across the road, stopping all traffic. Once the train had passed, he then re-opened the gates, allowing traffic to pass through the intersection once again.
