Cooper's Cottage

The cottage has been left standing in the main street.
"Coopers Cottage is an authentic abode of the early miner, built in 1916 ..."

Well, authentic but for the television screening promotional footage for Chambers of the Black Hand!

The construction of the cottage was not unlike the that of the shack I had lived in at various times as a child at Yowah.  I showed Vaughan the fuel stove in the kitchen area.  I attempted to explain how the stove worked but typically he was far more interested in catching a gecko that had been hiding behind one of the oven doors!
