Bottle Collecting with Mother Hubbard

Old Temora Road
On a very windy ride 10 km down the Old Temora Road a back lane or stock route held a sprawling surface tip. It yielded a frustrating array of shards- beautiful colours, wonderful shapes, interesting inscriptions- all broken. Either previous collectors have picked it clean or kids have had a lot of fun, or both.

Stock Route North of town.

The stock route between the Barmedman road and the Cemetery road had a number of tips. Some manganese glass indicated age in some, but all but a few recent uninteresting bottles had been smashed. Evidence suggested this location was too close to town to escape the depredations of wandering kids.
