Leura, in the fading light of winter. It was a beautiful day.
From a distance far far away, a pair of magical eyes spotted a magical tree. And the photo taking began…
Finally found a day to date Autumn.
Unfortunately she brought her friends, Cold and Strong Wind along, which blew me off a little. But all turned out well in the end.
“The Mortuary Station was built during the years 1868 and 1869, and was officially opened in June 1869.
The building was used as the terminus for funeral trains only until 1938. When the rail funeral business gave way to road corteges and motor hearses, rail services were restricted to weekends and finally curtailed. On April 3 1948, trains were withdrawn and the cemetery line closed. Trains left from the main terminus platforms over the final ten years of the funeral rail service. There being no call for the rail hearse, the Mortuary Station ceased to function in the capacity of its original purpose.”
