Hi David.

Looks like a fire box. Another way a dog can keep you warm?

Cheers,

Mike

Just another example of why you should spell out things in full the first time you introduce them, particularly in the heading to make the heading meaningful.

It looks like suburbia to me and what's with the tower in the background. I think you're having a lend eh!

Duketon is an abandoned town in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, located north of Leonora. The town boomed during the early 1900s as a result of gold being discovered in the area. One of the larger mines in the area, The Golden Spinifex, built a five head stamp mill in 1902-1903. A petition for the government to construct a state battery was presented to the minister for mines by the local MLA signed by 58 leaseholders, prospectors and miners from Duketon. The battery was built in 1904 and operated near the town. By 1905 the town had a hotel, bakery, a bank branch along with a variety of other stores.

Of course it's suburbia. You think I live in Duketon. ? Tower in the background. Best you have another look eh. Well done on the research, still plenty of gold up that way. Been good to me at times.

Looks like a hinged panel on the side - so maybe a letterbox?

OK David, I'm assuming it it is a fire box arrangement with a hinged door and vents.
Where was it used ?

Cheers

Thanks for the replies. Might have been a help if I had given the size. 400mm. Close calls by Jim/Tshilux.
And no Garry, it's not the tin that Rin Tin Tin sh-t in.
Lift the hinged flap and there's a tray with a spike in the center to fit a candle, so it's a LANTERN.
Might have been left behind by the early prospectors as it's got some age.
Next project is to fit a LED/Solar setup so he can stand guard in the shade house.
Looks like I've got plenty of spare time. :)
