dugout entrance & shower, 1965 This property was owned by an eccentric local resident who didn't trust the PMG so he used pigeons to fly correspondence to Adelaide. The pigeon loft is on stilts. The pipe for the water tank ran to his bathroom/shower. As the water travelled through the pipe it was heated by the sun - instant free hot water.
