A T at work welding the pipeline.

The Goldfields Pipeline in Western Australia carries drinking water a distance of 330 miles from a new dam to the gold mining areas of Kalgoorlie, Boulder and Coolgardie. It was completed in 1903. Without that water, it would not have been possible for those towns to develop and the quantities of gold to be mined.
It seems that by the later '20s maintenance was required so here is a TT carting a prtable electric welder to do the job.

It is great to see the different applications that Model Ts fell into.
Thanks for these photos.

When did I do that?
