Australia, 1950

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Shearing teams are at work in different parts of Australia for most seasons of the year. This film tells the story of the shearers arriving at a typical sheep station and of their accommodation, the preparation of the various machines, combs and cutters - all of those things which must be attended to before the men begin work next morning.
