As the waters of Lake Eucumbene continued to fall, this old farm vehicle was left high and dry. The vehicle, (possibly a delivery cart?) was left behind when the lake was filled in 1959 as part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme. It sat under the water for almost 50 years before finally seeing the sky again in July 2006. The lake was at 24.4% of capacity on the day this photo was taken (9 July 2006).
I visited the area when it was all being built, makes me feel very old.
