School & shop, Beaconsfield

Opposite the Grubb Shaft Gold Museum (now Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre) there's a small complex of recreated buildings with miner's cottage, school & shop. The school came from nearby Flowery Gully. I can't remember the origin of the others.

The shop is small front building in the above photo. The single-room school is at the back. The grey walkway is where the photos are taken from, through the window.

Miner’s Cottage, Beaconsfield

Opposite the Grubb Shaft Gold Museum (now Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre) there's a small complex of recreated buildings with miner's cottage, school & shop. The school came from nearby Flower Gully. I can't remember the origin of the others.

The cottage consists of a single living room at the front (left to right when looking in the windows: fireplace & chair, table, bed) and a bathroom and dining/cooking room at the back. The latter visible through the door of the front room.
