    Adelaide Nissen

    Inspired by Walters Nissen hut converted dwellings I did the rounds of Adelaide's industrial areas today to find some local examples.
    I found three in total with a huge one that still alludes me where I have seen it.
    But this one was by far the most photogenic in the bright conditions.

    That's a mighty big drum there.
    I've been meaning to take a wander around the industrial area near my work and I always seem to pick the wrong light time when I remember

    A very large one is Adelaide Rural Salvage on Hanson rd. All the beams are laminated and I beleive the largest one in Aus..
    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    Thanks for that. Not the one I was thinking of, but I'll check it out next time I'm down that way with the camera.
    Certainly looks huge though.
