Show­ing off the horse-drawn Furphy Farm Wa­ter Cart

Western Times - - NEWS | WELCOME -

RE­STORED: Back in 1986, the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety had just com­pleted the restora­tion of an old, horse-drawn Furphy Farm Wa­ter Cart which had been ly­ing around for many years. Ahead of the start of that year’s BoogaWoon­ga­roo Fes­ti­val, then vice pres­i­dent Ken Read, who was keen to show it off, posed in front of His­toric House and op­po­site Peter and Eleni Comino’s Athe­nian store – where the li­brary is today - with Brian Pike’s South West Dis­tribut­ing Co to the right. More than 30 years have elapsed and the age­ing ve­hi­cle will soon un­dergo some much-needed re­fur­bish­ment, thanks to the ef­forts of the WORC team.
