Relics at Wyalkatchem

Last weekend, feeling a bit bored we took a drive over to Wyalkatchem, about 130 klms away. After poking around at the swap meet and lunch at the hotel, we wandered over to the museum, with it's wonderful collection of old tractors, cars and trucks, dating back to the early 1900's. Rusty relics of a past era.

  2. So interesting to see the way some of the vehicles have been restored, and others, not!! I would have spent hours there, taking macros of all the bits and pieces!!!
