Default NAA Woomera pics

Pics I found in the NAA system: scenes at Woomera and Maralinga Sth. Australia - late 1940s and 1950s.

Woomera was and I think still is a rocket/jet testing facility and Maralinga was the Nuclear bomb test range - the British Govt. were very much involved in both.

Default Covers

Covers over Land Rovers at a location near Maralinga. Would this be a method of preventing radiation dust contamination ?
