Extraordinary Mondays - Our industrial past

If you told me ten years ago that I would love the look of rust and the aesthetics of machinery of the bygone years, I would have laughed and said that you really didn't know me at all. Well, how I have changed. I must say that the work I currently do has given me an appreciation for just that. An appreciation of a kind of industrial Australiana.

I thought I'd share with you a little of it.
