A few pics today of the remains of Salisbury Homestead which was destroyed by a 6.9 magnitude earthquake in 1968. Meckering , which was destroyed by the earthquake is 130 klm east of Perth. The remains of this house have been left as they were back then, now being a reminder of the devastation the quake caused. I was a teenager at the time, living in Perth and vividly remember sitting on my bedroom floor looking through my scrapbook, when I felt the room sway. The quake lasted for about 40 seconds.
Linking today with Rubbish Tuesday
The marker tells where the baby's cot was
The kitchen area, note the old cooker
The front steps
A rose bush and fruit tree still grows
