Unidentified Concrete Foundations

We are yet to identify what this big foundations were for, with a smaller rectangular one on the northern side. This is located at the rear of the accommodation block.

Big shoutout to Sandra Playle who identified the engraving on the small foundations for us. It's believed to read E. Kutzer, being that of WX30727 Ernest Robert Kutzer.

A big thankyou to everyone on the Abandoned Western Australia Facebook page who also helped!

In loving memory of
Lance Sergent Ernest 'Ernie' Kutzer
