For this week’s Saturday Sepia theme of tents I will go back to some men at a sheep sale in 1920 at the large Kooba station in New South Wales which I used in a previous post .
Kooba was a 120,000 acre station in south-central New South Wales . The station had been sold and it was time to sell its 40,000 sheep as well as some cattle and horses. But this time the picture is of a tent.
It is believed that this photo was taken on that day. It’s hard to know what the tent was used for – was it a refreshment tent – you can see a wagon pulled up at the back of the tent which could have brought supplies. Or was it used as a place for business. A bonus is seeing all the lovely old cars and the beautiful setting for the tent.
Other tents at other places can be seen via Sepia Saturday
