|@Stratford School Ruin, Lawson|
After showing the Blast Furnace ruins in Lithgow on Friday I thought I would dig into my photo archive and show you our very own ruin in Lawson.
The tower is from an old guest house that later became the Stratford Girls School and subsequently used for other purposes until a fire destroyed the building in the 1980s. The ruin has been secured and is a local landmark, but the grounds are just a tangle.
I was interested to discover an elderly lady at our church in Kandos was a boarder at the Stratford Girls School - shown in its original state below.
Matthew 6:19-20 New International Version (NIV)
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal."
