THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE VELDT SHEEP STATION IN OUTBACK NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA IN 1948. IT HAS 52,000 ACRES OF LAND AND SHEARS OVER 3,000 SHEEP A YEAR.
The station is run by the Barlow family, who have several young children. It takes approximately four hours for them to get to the nearest town by horse. This picture was taken long before the internet and, at that point in time, most people did not own a television.
