View of railway yards enclosed by high corrugated iron fences and city buildings beyond. The foreground yard contains many pieces of metal equipment including rods and tender bogies, the undercarriages of the cars that carry the trains' fuel and water. The objects are sorted into different areas and stacked in various ways, according to their shapes. The Eveleigh railway workshops were built between 1880 and 1886 and they continued to operate until 1989. From the 1880s to the late 1920s in particular, the workshops were the centre of a large community of railway employees and their families, who lived in the surrounding area.
