Mungo Station shearing sheds. Note the ‘dropped log’ construction of the walls. When the shed was first built shearing was done with hand clippers and there were many shearers, as times changed and steam-engine powered clippers became available the number of shearers was reduced to 5. Hence only the last 5 bays have the corrals for the shorn sheep.
