I keep seeing this place as I drive past, and I finally managed to grab a few shots.

It looks like it's been damaged by fire at some point, and I don't really know much about it, but thought some of you might like to see the photos.

Neat! Is it still used in newer construction?

Thanks for sharing Burra!
I just love old buildings.  
The way that looks built , maybe animals were kept in the large portion with hardly any windows and the Shepard  lived in the smaller area with the stove pipe visible ?
Fun to wonder about silly things like that.
 
I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here with this tiny ad:
