MINER’S HUT. LITHGOW VALLEY NSW. 1880

A colliery worker’s hut in the Lithgow Valley, Central Tablelands of NSW.

A contemporary report in the ‘Sydney Mail’ described the worker’s huts as…
”of the rudest description, being logs cemented together with mud and covered with either canvas or bark. Yet inside I found a snugness which contrasts greatly with the exterior”.
