  1. I haven’t seen the first photo before??? Do you know where it was taken and what is that in the right hand background???

    • This photo of a young Will Weaver (note his dark hair) and his mate earning their wages by breaking rock was probably taken in the Rockbank – Melton district where stone fences were a common feature of the roadsides. The building in the background appears to have been a makeshift barn, stables or shed, the rusted iron roof having been salvaged from another building. This photo was always on the mantel shelf above the kitchen stove at the Kal Kallo farm. As a boy I never thought to ask about the location. It does not appear to have been taken at the farm.
