Mount Shannon

Easterly view of Mount Shannon in the distance on `Karinya', the hill country estate of the Dean family near Moculta in the Barossa Ranges. Lieutenant Colonel Dean as Commandant of Loveday employed detainees on this property. The Colonel's fascination with the agricultural potential of detainee labour at Loveday distracted him from supervision of security conditions in the camp, indirectly contributing to the death of Francesco Fantin.
