Northam: a pictorial

Cob’s farm overlooks Northam. 100 km east from Perth along the Great Eastern Highway. Glory days a good 110 long years past when the gold rushes at the beginning of the 19th century were in full swing 500 km further east in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie. Northam was a key transit town through which men, the families, equipment and materials flowed. As well as the supply of various agricultural products.

It’s a nice rural town. Baz can’t recall ever having been in the town so we paid a visit.

I was quite taken by the graffiti on the 100 m high wheat silos, far more than Northam’s highstreet, as you can tell from the photos …
