Historic Terowie, South Australia
On out way home from a recent visit to family in Peterborough we called into the historic town of Terowie in the mid-north of South Australia. This old town is about a 20 minute drive south of Peterborough and normally we take the by-pass route. On this occasion we went into the town in order to take some photos of the old bank building there. A friend asked us to take a few photos because her camera failed to download the photos she had taken on a visit last year.
Terowie was surveyed in 1877 and was soon settled and became a thriving town. The growing network of railways in South Australia ensured that the town would – for a time – thrive. It soon became a bustling town and served the growing rural community in which it was based. Now it is a sleepy, quiet town, far removed from the hustle of former days. Here you can read more about its history, and some of the people who lived and worked there.
I will post more photos in coming days.
