Lornesleigh Station was my first home and was so until the family sold up in the late 1960's. It was founded by my great grandfather, John Clark in 1870. Sadly, the new owners were a multi-national and let it go to ruin, so these photographs are the only reminder of what it used to look like. 

Upstairs verandah with father's gun cupboard and my bed.

The wood stove. Great to be around on a cold morning.

The lounge. A few parties in here.
Downstairs. It was the coolest part of the house. There were no fans or air-conditioners then.

Dad in the kitchen.
Rain water tank. 
A bedroom. Note the pistol hanging off the bed.
