Archie Kite, Quorn S.A.

INTERVIEW: Archie Kite -1969

 

PLACE: Quorn, South Australia

 

NOTES:

Archie, aged about 70, was the caretaker of the camping ground at Quorn. At the age of eight he was driving a donkey wagon out of Quorn, accompanying his father who drove another team. He has spent most of his life carting with camels and donkeys all over the Centre, up the Birdsville Track and to the copper mines in the northern Flinders Ranges. Like Spider Willard he employs a distinctive pronunciation of local place names and talks about social life, dances, loading camel teams, eye troubles and bush dentistry
