Depot Springs station, northern Flinders Ranges.
There’s something quite charming about an old shearing shed.
The wood stands out. It’s been polished by the lanolin from the wool of many thousands of sheep and the constant activity that goes on in the shed when shearing’s in full swing.
The Depot Springs shed is over 90 years old and despite its age has stood the test of time.
A pair of hand made boots that have seen sheep aplenty meet the shearer at this spot, stand ready for the next morning’s work.
They are built for comfort, anything to make the hard work more bearable.
