Description

Photograph of tables filled with sheep’s fleeces at a wool show room in Sydney, Australia. Wool sales began to move to Australia from England in the later 19th century, when technology such as steam-powered ships and the telegraph enabled more rapid communication and transportation - not just of the wool, but of those who bought and sold it.
