G'Day all, new to this and I'm hoping that there's somebody out there that
maybe able to help me out with a bit of nostalgic photo's please.
I left the old hamilton station which was about 5klm nth/west of the one that
is running now, i was 5 at that time in 1965, and remember it fondly, all that
was there then was the now derilect homstead that is basically falling down
if not totally gone,when facing the homestead on the left was the water tank
and on the right about 100mtrs were the yards, from the house. Unfortunatley
when the bitch tracey hit Darwin in 74 like every one else we lost all our photo's, so the question or favour I'm asking for is if anyone out there in the
adventure world that have or know somebody that has anything of what I'm
hopefully trying to get.Thank's for your time in reading this, and here's to
hoping.

Kindest Regards
Chris McALear

Sorry Bob and every one, it's in Sth. Aust. you go on to the oodnadatta track
from the Stuart hwy/Marla, turn right at app. 20klm before Oodnadatta itself.
The track then continues all the way in a nw direction back to the Nth/Terr border onto Finke.The now hamilton station is about 80--90klm from that
turn off,the one I grew up on is about 5k nw further of there.
Regards Chris

No a nostalgic one but here is one from just over the river from the current homestead, where the cattle yards are on the right of the road north. Maybe they were there at the time you were.

Grid ref: S 2 42' 17" E 135 4' 43"

Whoops I made a typo:

The location of the old Cattle yard is: S 26 41' 50" E 135 4' 44". I also fixed the photo reference on the Google Earth site. If you cannot see the photo on the Google screen let me know please. I haven't done that before and would like to know it worked.

Try this

First you have to log in to Google Earth.

Click on the yellow placemark button.

This will put one in the middle of the screen. Click and hold on the placemark and move it to the correct position.

Then click on "Add Link. Type in the full address/URL of the photo and click okay. I upload my photo to photobucket and then use the copy and paste to copy the photobucket direct link from photobucket as the URL. Then click on Okay.

Edit any information in the place mark roperties window and click Okay to close and save the placemark.

You may have to wait for the photo to load.

I think this is how I did it.
