This USB records some of the experiences of shearing teams from the early 1900s through to the early 60s. They travelled on the backs of bizarrely adapted trucks from Perth to the pastoral regions of WA, the Kimberley, Pilbara, Ashburton, Gascoyne, Murchison and Eastern Goldfields from sheep station to sheep station, to shear very large flocks of sheep. Some teams went north by ship, avoiding the long days of travelling on rough unsealed roads sitting on the back of the “ring-pounder” trucks. In later years, many travelled by plane to the northwest stations.
