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.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
