Australia In 1901- 1914

  1. 1. AUSTRALIA IN 1901- 1914 By James Abraham
  2. 2. Living & Working Conditions
  3. 3. Living <ul><li>Family </li></ul><ul><li>Religion </li></ul><ul><li>Income </li></ul><ul><li>Hygiene </li></ul><ul><li>Work </li></ul><ul><li>Entertainment </li></ul><ul><li>Transport </li></ul><ul><li>Goods </li></ul>
  4. 4. Family <ul><li>Well this is my family. It is </li></ul><ul><li>pretty big & I have to feed </li></ul><ul><li>all of them with the money </li></ul><ul><li>I earn by working on my farm. </li></ul><ul><li>It is pretty hard to survive but </li></ul><ul><li>We make just enough to go on </li></ul><ul><li>with my life </li></ul>
  5. 5. Religion <ul><li>This is the church in my </li></ul><ul><li>Home town. We go there </li></ul><ul><li>every Sabbath. It is a place </li></ul><ul><li>where I can forget my worries </li></ul><ul><li>& be happy-talking with my </li></ul><ul><li>mates & most importantly </li></ul><ul><li>Jesus. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Income <ul><li>My income as a farmer is not the best. Like I </li></ul><ul><li>said I make just enough for my </li></ul><ul><li>family to survive. A big family </li></ul><ul><li>doesn’t help my income either. It is </li></ul><ul><li>rather stressful to keep the money </li></ul><ul><li>Coming. These are hard times for </li></ul><ul><li>my family & Australia with the new </li></ul><ul><li>federation & everything. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Hygiene <ul><li>Well I cannot say our hygiene is the best, nor </li></ul><ul><li>is it the worst compared to </li></ul><ul><li>the other families. We scarcely </li></ul><ul><li>have enough water to drink & </li></ul><ul><li>wash, so we can’t waste it on </li></ul><ul><li>washing our hands. We were </li></ul><ul><li>forced to excrete outside & we </li></ul><ul><li>simply covered it up with mud. It gradually </li></ul><ul><li>Decomposes, so it doesn’t stink. It is the best we </li></ul><ul><li>have. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Work <ul><li>My work is not very </li></ul><ul><li>interesting as the </li></ul><ul><li>workers in the factories </li></ul><ul><li>but I do it to feed my </li></ul><ul><li>family. The only good </li></ul><ul><li>thing is that I can do work at my own will rather </li></ul><ul><li>than an employer with a contract. I think I am </li></ul><ul><li>better than the workers, as I have my free will still </li></ul><ul><li>intact </li></ul>
  9. 9. Entertainemnt <ul><li>I only entertainment after a good day’s work is </li></ul><ul><li>the radio. It keeps we calm & </li></ul><ul><li>relaxed sometimes even </li></ul><ul><li>refreshed to listen & hear to my </li></ul><ul><li>favourite programs. It was great </li></ul><ul><li>fun & kept my family entertainment for the day. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Transport <ul><li>I use a horse named Charlie as my transport to </li></ul><ul><li>move around the farm. He is </li></ul><ul><li>good & healthy horse with a </li></ul><ul><li>lot of energy. He helps me </li></ul><ul><li>around in my jobs & he lifts </li></ul><ul><li>my boredom a bit. He is a </li></ul><ul><li>good companion & friend to </li></ul><ul><li>me. A very dear one too. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Goods <ul><li>I buy my extra goods in town from the shops. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of them are my good mates </li></ul><ul><li>so I often go down there to </li></ul><ul><li>have a chat or buy so goods. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course Charlie comes along </li></ul><ul><li>too as he gets free apples. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Wife <ul><li>My wife is very supportive of me. She does all </li></ul><ul><li>the household work & takes </li></ul><ul><li>care of my children why I am </li></ul><ul><li>working. I don’t know what I </li></ul><ul><li>will do without her. She is the </li></ul><ul><li>trunk of my family. A wonderful </li></ul><ul><li>wife to me & a great mother </li></ul><ul><li>to my dear children. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Children <ul><li>My children are very dear to me. It spreads joy </li></ul><ul><li>to the boring & tough life I lead. </li></ul><ul><li>They make me forget my worries </li></ul><ul><li>at home & spread joy to my life. </li></ul><ul><li>I am very lucky to have such </li></ul><ul><li>Wonderful kids. Very lucky </li></ul><ul><li>indeed </li></ul>
  14. 14. Lifestyle <ul><li>Breakfast </li></ul><ul><li>Work </li></ul><ul><li>Lunch </li></ul><ul><li>Work </li></ul><ul><li>Relax </li></ul><ul><li>Dinner </li></ul><ul><li>Sleep </li></ul>
  15. 15. Breakfast I get up at 5:30 am. I have a very simple breakfast of egg & toast. That is only what I can afford for my family. It is not much, but it is better than an empty stomach.
  16. 16. Work I work on my farm till about 12 noon. Then I start heading home for my lunch as i am usually famished. Of course Charlie get’s me there before I faint
  17. 17. Lunch This is what I eat for lunch. Again it is not much but it satisfies me more than enough to go on with the rest of my day’s work
  18. 18. Work I return to work on the farm until around 5: 30 pm when I start heading home with a day’s work out of the way with Charlie.
  19. 19. Relaxation I return from work & turn on the radio to relax after a hard day's work. It feels good to rest after a hard day. You get a feeling of satisfaction.
  20. 20. Dinner Dinner is the same as lunch or whatever is left over from it. I just can’t afford to have 3 full meals a day.
  21. 21. Sleep At last I go to sleep at around 9:00 pm & usually fall asleep the movement I touch the bed after a long day’s work.
