From Halls Creek in Western Australia to Becky’s squares, an extraordinary monument.
Straight from the plaque :
It shows”Russian Jack” (Real name Ivan Fredericks) a famous figure in the gold rush of 1885.
“Russian Jack” once carried a sick friend more than 300 kilometres in a bush-made wheelbarrow seeking medical aid over a track which existed in name only.
His feat symbolised the mateship and endurance of the pioneers of a region, then lacking all the amenities of civilisation.
I think many are metaphorically doing the same thing during these unusual times.
