Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Stones or Brick


Stones and Convict Bricks

My theme for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge today is a historical one. Many of the older settlements in Tasmania were built with convict labour using bricks which were also made by the convicts. Naomi’s home town of Oatlands is one of those along with Ross, Richmond and Campbelltown to name some of the more well-known ones. Here are a few old photos re-edited.

  1. I will miss these old buildings and the mill of course. However until I sell my own house I will have the best of both worlds. Life in a Garrison town and life by the seaside. Aren’t I the lucky one?
