Jessie’s Carpetbag Frame near Bogee River

20 January, 2015

News! Jessie’s carpetbag frame is found at one of her hideouts. While interviewing Ian Grimshaw (5th generation farmer at Capertee) on the site of Jessie’s hideout on the Bogee River, Ian picked up a peice of rusty tin and reckons this would be a traveling carpetbag she left there. Amazing day. Will post the interview later.  I took it into town and its been catalogued for the Kandos Historical Society. When I asked Ian how he knew it was a woman’s bag frame; he said with a dry crawl – that he would not want to be seen carrying that sort of bag!
