The Pilbara is a beautiful spot, even the town of Wittenoom.
Philip Schubert first went to the Pilbara in 1959. This film was shot by his Father and shows Port Sampson and Wittenoom. Dales Gorge was virtually unknown then. Philip is the small boy in the film.
The film also shows a truck travelling on a road carrying asbestos. It’s not hard to notice the asbestos tailings casually by the side of the road near the race track.
