all okay Ray. This ones back!
Those early craftsmen and craftswomen (vagabonds) you sent on a slow boat DownUnder served the churches well and we have many beautiful ones thanks to them and their English pedigree.
Not sure if this contravenes anything but its available online so repost here.
This Salvation Army hall is I think still same as the building in place now, but now a private shop. Well the old (as we knew it growing up) 'Salvo Hall' is still there and I assume this one is same.
The building on the right is still there too and looks the same today

Nice old shot Richard. It could be a prototype mobile naafi from the Crimea war. . Photography-wise that is. Although I think the naafi didn’t happen till just after WW1. I like the steam engine, I remember seeing them used here until the mid 50s on my uncle’s farm for driving the big logging saw and thrashing machine - nobody seemed to worry about ‘elf-n-safety then
Can you see the bloke in the front of the engine? He must be the foreman since he is wearing what looks like a bowler hat.
Any chance of getting a recent shot? Always nice to compare the past with the present.
