Gormanston, population 170. About one tenth what it was about a century ago when the town was home to employees of the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company, along with all the services a town needs: shops, hotels, local government, school, post office.
Cut from a photo from the State Library of Victoria
. Their photo is larger, if you want to look at details.

Just to finish off, a photo from the National Archives
(but the link probably doesn’t work). The caption is “An old-time prospector at home, on the outskirts of Gormanston, near Queenstown, a copper-mining centre on the rugged west coast of Tasmania.” (Lovely forested hills there.)
