- A Place & Date Used Sunbury, Australia
Gambrel - Caloola Training Centre Farm, Sunbury, Metal, circa 1940 Reg. No: SH 923079
- A frame used by butchers for hanging carcasses by the legs. Psychiatric institutions often worked their own farms and were, to varying degrees, self- sufficient in the production of meat and fresh produce. This gambrel was used at Caloola Training Centre, Sunbury about 1940.
- Rusted metal gambrel made from one piece of iron. Both ends curl upwards to end in a point. The rest of the gambrel is like the top section of a coat- hanger, with the centre rising in a semi-circular shape. Gambrel is symetrical on both sides of the centre.
