Steiglitz Historic Park may have been a mining hive of activity 150 years ago, but at times it’s hard to see signs of all those people who toiled in the area. Except for something like this. Without fail, on every visit, I’ve found a piece of Willow pattern ceramic somewhere. Creeks, tracks and believe it or not, one bit I found crushed into a dirt road by vehicles.
This shard was lying in a bone dry, Sutherland Creek, as I wandered up it.
