Mesopotamia at the end of the road

Taking a bob each way: rugby posts at one end, soccer goal at the other. The playing field is at Mesopotamia School, on Mesopotamia Station in the remote upper Rangitata Valley, South Canterbury. Though no longer operating as a daily public school, it's still a meeting place for valley families whose children are enrolled at the Correspondence School.

Much later, in 1911, this wagon was bought by Mesopotamia Station. Decrepit as it is today, the wagon gives a better sense of history than well-preserved models in museums.
