Like to share a few pics of my Albion I bought off an my old mate Lindsay about 15-20 years ago. He was selling some duck decoys and some other things he had in his shed. I bought the decoys, made of cork  from the insulation from the engine room that powered the Orbost  butter factory, way back when he was a young bloke. Anyway back to the oven. He told me that it belonged to his wife's family and it came with them when they came to East Gippsland many years ago. I was telling a bloke I worked with about ten years ago about this  camp oven and as is the case in many small towns,a Lot of people are related. He went on to tell me that this particular family was also related, his great grandmother, and they came here in 1880.It has a pretty ordinary wire bale , and I reckon that's how I'm going to leave it.Lindsay passed away quite a few years ago,and I still use his decoys every duck season,and I reckon this year I'm going to take it out of the protection of the shed and give it a run up the bush on a deer hunting weekend.

A very nice old oven there and it is good you have the history with it. It would be around 100 - 120 years old. It will still cook up a good feed no doubt.
