leedermeg

Was given some old postcards and found this one with Leedermeg in it!

I remember seeing this thing as a kid but only saw Brian Blanchflower’s book many years later. The story I heard that was there was a chrome plating plant that was bulldozed when the Mitchell Freeway went through and the strange chemical precipitation megalith was dug up where the plant’s waste water was dumped. At the time it was so big it couldn’t be removed. I must go down to the site to see what is left (I’m thinking it has gone now????)

I found these images in an old postcard album. In March 2014 I wish to rephotograph, as much as possible these locations in and around Pemberton, for an exhibition about forests called Canopy. Some are quite obvious where they are, others are probably never going to be found. But if you have any information about any of these locations, please comment in the field below (scroll right down) or email by 10 March:

Will this photograph bring back especially personal memories? Will we see it as something of the present or the past?
