Historical Notes: Note on back of file print reads "Outside view of "portholes" and pens where the sheep shorn in one "run" await counting. Two sheep are just about to jump down. The bags at the windows are to shade the sun from the shearers. A "run" is in this case a period of generally 2 hours, in which the men shear non-stop. They then have an half hour rest. The half hour in the morning and afternoon for "smoko" and an hour for dinner."
