This was a typical miners cottage and show how he and probably his family would have lived during the goldrush times. Their routines were built around the working times at the mine which were made up of three 8 hour shifts. The miners would either catch a train or walk to the mines and would take with them his lunch and billy of tea. Once he arrived he would change into his mine clothes, grabe his cap and lamp and descend into the mine. When the miner wasn?t working he would socialise with friends at the pub or be found doing odd jobs outside the home.
