In the early 1870s rich gold discoveries rapidly turned Hill End from a small rurul & mining community into one of the largest inland towns in NSW.Once the riches were taken from the goldfield,the town gradually reverted back to its former status.Today it provides us with the opportunity to explore what it was like to live and work in a major commercial centre in the late 1800s.This capture was taken at the Bald Hill Mine.NSW Australia.
