Yesterday's (and today's) heroes

On a recent photographic foray some 100kms north of Adelaide, we came across this haywagon at the entrance to a rural property.

Closer inspection revealed the wonderful ingenuity and craftsmanship of yesterday's farmers and fellow country dwellers in the construction of wagon wheels such as this. (No mass production line stuff here!!)
I admire and salute our farming population - both past and present - for their persistence, patience and perseverance in the face of all kinds of "challenges", resulting in our having food on the table and clothes on our back.  Bravo!

How delightful to see it sitting there already loaded, as if still in use. The craftsmanship and materials are wonderful to see.
