Miners - Now And Then
This composition is part of the Re-Picture Australia Project. The central image is "Wallaroo Miners" and can be seen by visiting the State Library Of South Australia here: images.slsa.sa.gov.au/mpcimg/28780/B28667.htm. I added images I took at Mandalong Mines in NSW last year to highlight the differences in mining as years have gone by. The image on the old timber beam is that of the silhouette of a power station at Vales Point NSW, signifying industrialization.
