  • Item
  • 1914

39 black and white photographs (8 x 14 cm and smaller) mounted between board.
Flanking the Barcoo River at Isisford in the heart of Queensland's best central-west grazing country, Isis Downs is one of Australia's largest pastoral holdings. In its 1912 heyday under the ownership of Sir Rupert Clarke and Richard Whiting, Isis Downs ran 230,000 sheep and employed up to 150 staff during shearing, its area totalling more than 2,430 sq km. The Isis Downs shearing shed is the largest shearing shed in Australia. It consists of 52 shearing stands and is equipped with a rectangular sheep yard complex which, in its day, could hold 30,000 sheep at full capacity. It is a huge semi-circular shed which was fabricated in England, shipped to Australia and erected on site in July 1914 by the same company that built the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Only two sheds of this type and style were ever manufactured, with the other one being situated in Argentina.
