We have fairly good evidence that this is actually at Tarranyurk. I have spent some time studying this picture (I did a video slide show for our Back-to Tarranyurk), and am convinced that it is.

Yes Greg King is correct. The photo was taken in the Tarranyurk Silo yard. The tree line in the background is the Wimmera River. The Name of the Bullock Team master is "F Gangel", not "George" as stated above. Delivering bagged Wheat to be stacked in the huge Wheat stacks.
