Maronas Time Warp
On the way to Maronas we drove through the wind farm. This of course wouldn't have existed in 1964, It is the first time I have seen one of the windmills getting a repair though.

I wonder what was wrong with it?
I won't go into detail on the rest of the drive. Suffice it to say, we arrived above Maronas soon enough. I had a printout of Tommy's picture, and I was able to locate where he must have stood to take the picture. But first, let's see the picture he took.

And there you have it. There is a lot more to Maronas than these buildings, but you can see the centre from this view, and especially the mosque. Behind that there is a building with some sort of verandah, and to the left you can see the road. There is even a farm vehicle there. To match this view, we need to get the corner of the building to the right of the mosque directy below where the pillar on the verandah would have been.

Now, I tried lining up the pillar, and it led me to this scene. Unfortunately, it is clear that Mother Nature has not been idle.
