Kaye Menner | Old Iron Oven / Stove

Old Iron Oven / Stove

This beautiful antique iron oven / stove I captured at a large antique store in an old town called Bowraville, NSW, Australia. A wood-burning stove (or wood burner or log burner in the UK) is a heating appliance capable of burning wood fuel and wood-derived biomass fuel, such as sawdust bricks. Generally the appliance consists of a solid metal (usually cast iron or steel) closed firebox, often lined by fire brick, and one or more air controls (which can be manually or automatically operated depending upon the stove). The stove is connected by ventilating stove pipe to a suitable flue, which will fill with hot combustion gases once the fuel is ignited. The chimney or flue gases must be hotter than the outside temperature to ensure combustion gases are drawn out of the fire chamber and up the chimney.

Kaye Menner | Vintage Rolls Royce Pro Hart Artist's Car

Vintage Rolls Royce Pro Hart Artist's Car

I spent some time in Broken Hill recently and was amazed when I visited Pro Hart's gallery museum in Broken Hill. Just amazing. A beautiful old Rolls Royce car owned and painted by Pro Hart. I captured this image in Broken Hill in the Pro Hart Broken Hill Gallery, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia. The one I have attached here really caught my attention with his nature painting on this lovely old Rolls Royce. His work was a wonder to see - just loved it all. We were permitted to capture / photograph the cars and other images outside but not the images inside the gallery. This one was outside and permitted. A beautiful Rolls Royce, silver shadow, painted by Pro Hart. This is one of several of Pro Hart's vehicles in the grounds of the Pro Hart Gallery.
