Hello Dereck, The photo is a house for the mine workers which proberly came from Italy, the stone work style would subgest this. There is more than one and they blend in the hills and hard to see from a distance.

There is a story on newscomau about the top 10 ghost towns and there is a hotel at 'Artlunga' that is exactly the same brick and looks like it could have been built by the same builder as this one. I looked for Artlunga on GE but it did not come up.

Well, how's this... I have been to Arltunga_ :-))))
