Graham Brooker sent this photos of what's left of Frank's birthplace near Vacy, N.S.W., Australia. Thanks, Graham!

Slavin birthplace.
The ruins of the Slavin homstead as seen from across a field. The site is in the center of the photo, near the old square tank in the center of the photo, almost back to the tree line. Click here for a larger version of this photo.

Slavin birthplace.
The Slavin homestead is in the field on the other side of the trees along the right side of the road. (These trees formed the tree line in the photo above.) The site is easier to see in the large version of the photo; it's in the distance just to the right of the closest tree, near the white cow. Click here for a larger version of this photo.

Slavin homesite.
A closer view of the ruins of the Slavin home site. Graham points out that the base logs still show the grooves that were cut to accept the slab walls of the home. The tree on the left of the photo is a lemon tree, and if you look closely you can see that it's still bearing fruit. In the background, behind a line of vegitation about 400 meters away, is the Allyn River. Click here for a larger version of this photo.
