Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge – Abandoned Buildings or Barns


Last chance to see? – Port Adelaide’s industrial history

This is my entry for Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge this week.

Port Adelaide, the area that most of Hubby’s family grew up around was once a busy, bustling port with all kinds of industry taking place. A large section of town was taken up by the wool stores of Elder Smith Goldsborough Mort. Now most of the buildings are abandoned. The last time Hubby and I visited there we took photos in case they were demolished or turned into trendy apartments.

Still in Port Adelaide, South Australia Hart’s Mill was another stop on our “Before it’s too late” tour. In 2011 there were plans to turn it into an apartment complex.
