Remarkable photos of 1872 gold boom in Australia

Check out these old back-and-white photos of Australia during the 1870 gold rush. These mostly show the town’s inhabitants standing proudly in the dusty town or right in front of their establishments — like a butcher shop and an undertaker’s shop — and staring right into the lens. The pictures are beautifully lit, and they perfectly capture an era long gone.
