Wall

Sandstone

A fragment of indigenous walling, made of the local sandstone, stained red with iron. The characteristic colour of Barrow.

This is part of the wall of the Howitzer Shop, a huge building devoted to the building of big guns for warships which stretches for half a kilometre along Michaelson Road on Barrow Island. Actually one has to be a bit furtive taking pictures around here, as the security people are a bit paranoid.

  2. What a great wall – been photographing a wall myself this morning – won’t be posting it for a week or two though.
