Photo 11 - new beginings Forest Creek Victoria Australia

Daintree, Richard, 1832-1878, photographer.
The Ebbott family have travelled through rough terrain to get to their new home, I wonder what John's mother thought as she entered the town, prices were exorbitant.  The biggest building in the picture is the a in the upper left -  , the Mount Alexander Hotel and not a church steeple to be seen for as far as the eye can see.

  2. Oh WOW... look at that!!! My Great Grandmother set up one of the first "hotels", under canvas, for the miners flooding into Broken Hill at the time. Great picture and thanks for sharing. Regards, Catherine.
