near Manoora + hauntology

This photo below is of a gravestone in an old cemetery near Mintaro and Manoora that I came across as I made my way from the Clare Valley across the Tothill Range to the Murray Mallee via Robertstown to Morgan. It was late 2023, and in revisiting old terrain, I was looking at the cultivated landscape from the historical perspective of seeing what once had been but was now forgotten.

Linhof Technika 70 6x7
cemetery, near Manoora

I was looking for traces of the absent history of the old Mallee. I think this gravestone was in the cemetery at the St Anthony’s Catholic Cemetery but I am not sure. I didn’t take notes. I was passing through. I stopped, made a quick b+w photo with the baby Linhof (6×7) then moved on.
