Gummies in the bush

I know I'm pushing it to call
 this little border a fence but 
really it is the gumboots under
 the bush that intrigue me. 
This is in a public garden.

Demolition of an old treasure.

I believe this part was added to the main
 house when it became a rest home.

the little boys watching enjoyed this as did the big boys

I wish I had got a photo of the building before they started
 the demolition. It was built in the 1880's and was quite a grand old house. Some of the windows were saved as was the grand staircase and I hope the wrought iron work along the verandah was as well.
Since 1959 it has been operating as a rest home run by a Christian Trust. Yesterday, sad to say, the building was demolished.
