Liberator bomber wall mural 

This nearly completed mural on the back wall of our local supermarket in Tocumwal pays homage to the wartime history of the Tocumwal. 

An aerodrome, known as McIntyre Field, was built at Tocumwal in 1942 as a heavy bomber base for the United States Army Air Corps and spanned 5,200 acres. Such was the emergency to have it built to defend Australia from the Japanese who at that time were bombing Darwin, that landowners where given 24 hours to vacate their farms. It was only 5 weeks of construction from farm land to aerodrome when the first plane landed on the main runway. McIntyre Field also became the training base for Liberator bomber crews with 54 Liberators stationed there. 

The mural is being painted by Dave Monks of Tiger Signs.

Old postcards. 

I collect postcards but I am very specific in my quest – I collect vintage hay making postcards 
(which will be no surprise for those that have been following this blog for a while). 

Many of my postcards date back to the early 1900’s. I am fascinated by the scale of the hay stacks and different techniques used. A moment in time captured in each postcard. 

Are you a collector? What do you collect?
