In a discussion about commonplace things where we live that would be exciting and exotic to other poeple, Davina Harrington of South Hedland, Western Australia, wrote: "We have a giant wheelbarrow in town and a huge salt pile that looks like a big snow hill :)"
I wrote and asked for more details (naturally), and received this treasure:
It's a wheelbarrow that's been constructed from parts of an ore truck called a Haul pack - they are used for mining of iron ore here the wheel at the front is also from the same type of truck. It's located at the entrance to the light industrial area and has become a local landmark. That part of town is called Wedgefield.
I found [a photo]. Pretty sure it was taken a while ago it still looks quite new. It was made by volunteers which is cool.
