A city of tents and shanties rose on the sand-dunes.
Each load looks as if it contained the contents of a dozen shanties; and if one shanty is poor, this is a dozen times as poor.
Shocking enough, but as I drew closer I could see the shanties.
In these thoroughfares and in several of the streets which intersect them are the offices of the mining companies, the banks, clubs, newspaper offices, hotels and shops, the majority being handsome stone or brick buildings, while the survival of some wooden shanties and corrugated iron buildings recalls the early character of the town.
Familiar and unfamiliar Sea Shanties were accompanied by a variety of instruments including melodeons, concertinas, two guitars and a tin whistle.
