Horse carriage in the farm yard at Yallambie, (Bill Bush Collection).

Horse carriage in the farm yard just north of the house. The shingled roof visible over the back of the horse is the Bakewell stable. The wall visible to the right of the carriage is the old garden wall demolished when the garage and tall water tank were built in about 1923. The rectangular structure above the wall is probably an old metal tank used originally to carry goods out from England. Bill Bush recalled 2 or 3 of them being at Yallambie. The tank and the wall are shown in an oil painting by Annie Murdoch (ne Wragge), who took lessons in art from Walter Withers. The wall may have been a remaining part of one of the Bakewell era buildings, shown in the E. La Trobe Bateman drawings.
