Historical information

Both of these stereoscopic images depict a man standing by Lake Kerferd in Beechworth. The boathouse is located behind him.


Lake Kerferd is significant because it was created in 1862 and Beechworth's main water supply. These images depict how Lake Kerferd was once used for boats because of the boathouse shown in the background of the image. However this boathouse appears to be in poor condition. This could give an indication that either boating was not a popular activity or that this boathouse in particular was not well looked after.
