  1. Hi, I was wondering if these photos are from the old Soil Conservation Authority. I worked for them once. Erosion was incredibly bad back then.

    • Hi Rod, as I understand the SCA was constituted in 1950 so most of these images predate (just) that time. Certainly it was issues that images like this highlighted that spurred the formation of the SCA. Good work was done. Cheers, Geoff
