Photograph of a man, probably a railway worker, in a railway yard. Two sets of tracks intersect in the environs of buildings where various pieces of equipment are stored. The wagon on the track holds brass turnings which are the pieces or chips detached from the turned brass. Behind the man is a trolley with a steering wheel loaded with cylindrical iron objects. There are also large covered boxes and wooden barrels stacked along the walls. The workshops are not identified, but are probably the Eveleigh loco shops at Redfern where William Ellis worked for many years.
Location: (Probably) Eveleigh Railway Workshops, Redfern, Sydney
