    Safety is very important (And I'm a guy who, after 46 years of professional table-saw use, finally got a finger mangled by one)

    BUT...
    Apprenticeships are gone b/c of the labor laws.

    No all kids learn by book + lecture. Many are best at using their hands and brian together, but tools are all but verboten in schools these days, and kids aren't allowed to go work with a craftsman - especially at low pay.

    Jon,
    Kerry and Co were the photography company. This picture was probably at the Wool Stores in Pyrmont, Sydney. The buildings exteriors were carefully retained and restored in the 90's and huge #s of apartments put inside. Here's a couple of links for Kerry & Co and the Wool Stores. Thanks again for the wonderful journeys through the past. Cheers

    Yea, I found that as well! The MAAS has 3 museums in Sydney, the largest being the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo, Sydney (just over a small hill from the Pyrmont Wool Stores). It is a real treasure of any and all things Australian with heaps of emphasis on science and early industrial technology. A boys dream... Cheers

    Any full pictures of the above wool wagon? It seems the top of this one is masked for some reason. Maybe the guys on top were camera shy or wouldn't sign a release for their images? Robbers? Murderers? Political refugees? Three Stooges at their summer job?

    That whole white cloud in the background and cutting off the guys on top of the bales is strange, wonder why someone did that?

    Ahhh, when high quality old growth logs made fine lumber...I'm happy I was able to experience the timber harvesting in the 60s & 70s in CA, OR and WA...despite the rapacious volumes that were taken. Modern forestry has come a huge distance, but the fast growth makes for good, quick$$, but rubbish wood...oh well..
    I'm still trying to use my 25 ton supply of 'collected' wood and specialty plywood from 16 years in the AUS lumber game...
