In Australia all petroleum products were imported during the T era. Distribution to country and outback centres was made in square 5 gallon tins, packed two at a time in wooden boxes like these.



Both the boxes and empty cans were recycled in many and varied ways.

Henrietta's battery box was once a petrol case, but when I bought her the lid was missing.



I hunted down a damaged box to make a replacement lid. The one I found was a Pennant brand kerosine box, for which I traded Gargoyle oil box with rope handles on the ends I needed. The kero box had alteady been recycled twice.



One end of the box was printed on both sides, so the side of the lid I made has printing on display.



It meeds to be kicked around the workshop floor a bit to take off some of the raw edges of my handiwork.
