New-fangled horse drawn carriage

On the move...not me, these guys.

Black and white negative of a horse team moving a house from Creswick through Allendale, in Victoria about 1905 or 1909. Goldmining at Creswick was declining and there was less demand for houses in the area, hence the house was being moved. Jim Dempsey is driving the horse teams. Jack Dempsey is at right. Jim Mills is on the pony, Ginger. Jack Dempsey drove horses for the the Mills, and it is likely that the house removal company managing the move in this case was Mills. Source
