Artist's Description

Back in the olden days, many pioneers and settlers built their houses from slabs of hardwood timber, found in the surrounding forests. Eucalypt timber is very hard and durable and suited to many uses, such as the split rail fence. Original huts would have been more basic than this, with open windows, earth floors and bark used for roofing. Corrugated iron – another multifunctional material – would have come later, as would have the glass windows.

This picture was taken on a drive from St Albans (NW of Sydney, NSW Australia) to Bucketty, following the Old Northern Road, parts of which was originally constructed by convicts.
