SUNDAYS



Unity in Defiance.
The flag of the Eureka Stockade uprising of 1854. The legendry uprising played out on the goldfields in Victoria.
The flag is believed to be designed by a Canadian miner.
It is adopted by anti-authoritarian groups and others. Bikies have been known to use it.

We have never seen a political coup or revolution or civil war around here although the Whitlam government was dismissed on a November 11 and we almost have a 'dictatorship'.
The worst warfare occured/s against the Aborigines.

















BMW, trying to look 'endro', beside the Wollombi Pub. Incidentally the pub was half under water in the June flood. Below: Yamaha and a Honda.

Julia,

Great photo blog ... I was just perusing ... saw your comment about Whitlam ... yes, some of us are still angry about that !

In the UK, the last time somebody tried to dismiss a Government that still had the confidence of the Parliament (which was the position here with the Whitlam Govt), he lost his head ... and he was the King !
