Yvonne, thankyou for the clean-up, great detail on the folks in the car.  The lady in the rear
foreground looks less than happy doesn't she, can't say I blame her for that.  Long trip on winding
roads in an open car, just as well it was Summer.


Regards,
Jen.

They look well rugged up for summer, except for the driver.  :)
If the elderly lady was like my grandmother she'd be wondering where the nearest convenience was on a long trip.  ;)

Come on! I was taught it was always as hot as Hades and as flat as a pancake, apart from that big red rock in the middle. ;D   ;D  ;D


Hope you all had a spiffing bonza Australia Day.

Just to clarify one point - we DO have mountains here in Australia. I live on the Great Dividing range at approx 1000m above sea level (I know that is not a very high mountain) and we do have snow occasionally even tough it rarely lasts until midday.  The Jenolan Caves Road is a the bottom of my dirt road and I used to work at the hotel at the Caves.
In the early days it was possible to catch a train to Mount Victoria and then the following day go by coach to the caves - changing horses at the Half Way Hotel. Later people stayed at Mount Victoria, Katoomba or other towns in the Blue Mountains and travel to the caves by charabanc.  The last 10 miles is very steep and windy and would have been a bit scary in an open top vehicle. 
The Jenolan Caves Historical and preservation Society might have some information on the actual companies who took visitors to the caves - I remember some old books advertising these trips.
Jenolan was and still is a popular toruist attraction.

Jan, Thankyou for your insight into the early days travel to Jenolan Caves and Blue Mountains.
       Have been to the Caves - by bus though after a train to Katoomba from Sydney, they are
       spectacular.  I will contact the Jenolan Caves Historical Society, thankyou for the info. I am
       interested in these Jenolan Tours and their transport cars around WW1.

Regards,
Jen.
