Photographer's Note

Today I went for a trip to Hahndorf with a couple of friends. It is not far from my hometown of Balhannah. It was extremely hot but at least the sky was a lovely blue and there weren't as many tourist there as usually is the case.

History of Hahn:

On 12 August 1838, the ship Zebra captained by the Captain Dirk Hahn departed from Altona, Hamburg for its voyage to Port Misery, South Australia, arriving on 28 December 1838. The Zebra was the third ship after the Bengalee and Prince George that brought Prussian Lutheran migrants to South Australia. The founders of Hahndorf came from these three ships, many from the Zebra. On arrival and inspection, the migrants were very pleased and impressed with their newly acquired land.

Hahndorf was named after Captain Dirk Hahn in honour of his efforts in securing good land. "dorf" translated from German into English means, "village". Today, some German tourists are somewhat bemused by the name, to the confusion of local residents. This is apparently due to the most literal translation of the town's name being "rooster-village".

The Old Mill (the building photographed):
Located at 98 Main Street this old flour mill was built in 1853 and operated continuously crushing everything from mill to quartz and bone for fertiliser until 1912 when it closed down. In recent times it has been used as the Old Mill Restaurant which is part of the Old Mill motel.

The photo:
Resized, sharpened, selected parts of the roof and adjusted brightness, cloned out a street sign, and added the border.

Cheers,
Debbie
