Bear and the Princess are going to go touring in country NSW. We just need to get away because Vevencia has been fighting cancer for 3 years and the latest PET scan today looks clear. She has been through so much.
I thought might take a picture of every old Post Office in the towns we go through.
Our first town was only 100 kms from home and on the NSW border …
“Texas sits on Bigambul land, the Indigenous people of the region inhabited the area for thousands of years prior to colonisation in the 1840s.
The origin of the town’s name is generally regarded as a reference to a territorial dispute. The land in the area was first settled by the McDougall brothers, who found squatters there on returning from the goldfields. Once their legal right to the land was recognised, they named their property in honour of the rather more famous dispute between the United States and Mexico over territory in Texas, USA.]
Texas was connected by the Texas railway line from Inglewood in November 1930 with the town being served by the Texas railway station. The line was closed in 1994.
Up until about 1986, tobacco farming was an important industry in the area and many Italian families settled the area to run and work the tobacco farms.”
We started to wonder why there were not the old wonderful post offices they were probably in the first council building.
