Another shot of a favorite relic
Old truck near the abandoned Wallstreet Mill in Josgua Tree National Park. Although it's not in a "mint" condition, it was worth taking picture of. I love those places. It's just a 2 mile hike from the parking lot, but most people don't go there because of the heat.

I have a few of these desk bells but this one is by far my most ornate and I love it's resonance!
Secret service agent or so she thinks. Olive is traumatized by the new addition a chugg puppy weighing just under three pounds. Feeling safe behind the veil Olive watches as the ball of energy gallops madly around the back yard chasing her favorite aunt daphne. The pack is not balanced it will take more time.
I’ve been here before, and I’ll probably return. Just an old service station, edging into full retirement. Or collapse.

Just like this boat, it feels like I should retire my internet service provider. I had no connection for six days until today. Our rural service is slow on a good day and frequently cuts out. COVID-19 has overloaded their system with so many people at home. The boat is at Riverport, Nova Scotia.

Today we have started a series on the little town of Ross in the Midlands of Tasmania. In the four photographs today I am giving you a glimpse of what this fascinating historic town has to offer.
And talking of Australian history, this photograph tells us a great deal. This used to be the major service depot for Holden cars in the Midlands. For many years now it has been closed. Holden used to be Australia's national car. But when they announced the end of all operations in Australia on 11 December 2013, it really was the end of an era. More than that, it signified to the world that Australia no longer "makes things". Globalism is the new world order (and little did we know how far this idea would be pushed until now).
James Alexander Holden began a saddlery business in South Australia in 1856. From there they moved into upholstery of carriages and early piston engine vehicles in Australia. Ever a company to expand and diversify, Holden then began making body shells in Australia for the American Company General Motors in the 1920s. They also supplied materials for trams in Melbourne.
In 1931 Holden and General Motors merged to become that famous Australian entity, GMH. In 1936 an assembly plant was established at Fisherman's Bend in Melbourne. During the war this plant was converted to wartime production of aircraft.
After WW2 car building started again in earnest. GMH produced Buick, Chevrolet and Vauxhall vehicles under license. But the big step forward for the Australian motor vehicle industry was in 1948.
Prime Minister Ben Chifley announced that GMH would produce the first entirely Australian mass produced car. This was to be known affectionately as the "FX" (as a Nikon user of full frame cameras, I like that). You can read the rest of the story here: www.abc.net.au/news/2013-12-11/timeline-holden-history/51...
This building would then be one of the earliest Holden service centres in the country, and probably dates from around 1949-50. All these years later it is closed for service, but runs essentially as an antiques museum. And of course even the name "Holden" is no longer going to be used by General Motors. Another chapter of Australia's history comes to an end.
While I was wandering all over Ross taking photographs, Marjorie had set up her easel to paint the cenotaph I showed you yesterday. As I mentioned she had two great uncles go off to war, and one of them never returned. His name is inscribed on the memorial: Clarence Davidson. You can see Marjorie in this photograph outside the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church which was built in 1920. www.churchesaustralia.org/list-of-churches/locations/tasm...
Closer to camera is a really rare sight these days. A full service petrol station with a general store. That gaslight is also a treasure. The perfect shot for another monochrome.

Walking along the service road next to the California Aqueduct.
At 5 or 6 days old, this young robin seems to be demanding service, although he did tire a bit and had to lean his neck against the nest. Continuing with my "Rocky" theme, here Cuff reminds me of Rocky, eyes swollen at the end of the fight when he is yelling for Adrian.
GE ES40DC 7573 spent much of it's early life as a "grey ghost" locomotive in grey primer before finally getting a nice coat of black paint. This photo taken at Conway, Pa. yard and engine service facility.
Kemble Women's Institute Scenic Lookout.
"The Parkette is a memorial to the members of the Kemble Women's Institute, past and present, and it celebrates the 110th anniversary of the organization and features a unique tea service carving of rock and concrete. Stunning views to the east over Georgian Bay."
This is the final set of "extras" from the series on Evandale. Next we will start a series on Rural Life.
This abandoned service station, and later a take away shop, is found in one of the back streets of Evandale. There was a time when these full service garages were available every few blocks. Now we have to drive for miles to fill up in self service stations owned in many cases by the supermarket conglomerates.

... the whole fleet of the little ferry service was locked down... but fortunately... they are reopening... just with less passengers ... that almost means... one in the front and one in the back :-))

Just another of the many abandoned service stations around town. For many years, after the station closed, it was a TV repair shop. Now it's also out of service because today people just throw away their old sets instead of trying to fix them. A sign of the times...
Pretty self explanatory no?

Wilkinson Service Station at least the sign says, the old building I am not sure of it's origin, found in North Carolina.
