A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Sunday 23 December 2012

Meanwhile on the opposite wall.

In the seventies, "Home" to many was the Panel Van a particularly Australian evolution.  A vehicle designed to carry tools and equipment, which had a covered shelter almost exactly the size of a double mattress.

The interiors of these things often smelt of a strange concoction of working tools, surfboard wax, stale hamburger and perhaps some sort of vegetable matter.    Armed with a panel van and a quiver of surfboards, one could simply move house to wherever the surf was breaking best at any particular time.
