    What a great series of pictures from all over the eastern plains, forgotten, but not yet totally gone. If these walls all had working tape recorders, what stories that could be told.
    Looks like the Thatcher School Dst service pick up got dropped off in front of the school, and just left to rust!
    Thank’s for your efforts! Much appreciated!
