This selection of articles from the Agricultural Gazette of New South Wales from 1890-1910 has a bias towards providing basic food and shelter, clearing virgin land and mixed farming from the days before the widespread use of artificial fertilizers and farm machines. Instructs in how to - square a gatepost, make whitewash, build a slab hut, a rammed earth house or a water pumping windmill, harness horses and select and sharpen tools like axe, adze, plane, crosscut saw and scythe.

Hi, Not sure of the legalities but any chance of sharing some excerpts? Like the section on sharpening. It would be interesting to see what the thinking was back then.
