Dunlop Shed

On the drive between Cowra & Bathurst, just near the little village of Lyndhurst, is the old Dunlop shed. I've been driving past this shed since 1981 - watching it's slow decay with the passing of time.

I wish I had stopped more often to take a picture over the years.
It was fascinating to see how each letter fell off one at a time.

  1. What a great series of photos Brona! I rarely drive that road, so haven't seen it, and indeed it's not particularly recognisable now.

    1. The Dunlop shed was always a landmark when we were kids. It felt like the outer boundary of the shire - the point of no return!

  2. Isn't it funny how we mean to document something like that and then we don't. I like this a lot, Brona. My snap shot has a similar theme. http://brokencookiesdontcount.com/2014/11/01/saturday-snapshotnovember-1/ Thanks for sharing this.

  3. I like how you documented it bit at least. Hindsight is 20/20! Makes us remember to take more photos.

  4. Wonderful series! And what a great example of how we pass things by and don't often notice them....but you have noticed and commemorated them. Great idea!

    Reminds me of an old vintage 7-up sign on the road to my foothill home that fell into more and more of a state of dishevelment with time...and then one day it was gone!

    Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  5. Wow! A real sense of decay and abandonment.
