This image is based on a view from the top of one of the tailing 'hills' at the old Moonta Mines which is located at the tp of Yorke Peninsular in South Australia. During the late 1800's some of my past relatives came from Cornwall in England to work in the mines, two of which worked in this pump house looking after the pump which removed water from the mine.
