  7. I much prefer the older buildings style to most of what we erect these days. And the older buildings last better too.

    1. Launceston is the 3rd oldest city in Australia.
      Sydney, Hobart then Launceston.

  10. All nicely maintained or restored. It is good to see there are no monster glass towers.

    1. Oh dear, those glass towers in some other cities - take away from the old buildings.

  11. They're just beautiful, and I hope they stay that way for at least another 200 years.
    Is that purple one commercial or converted to housing?

    1. They are lovely - not seen in all towns/cities of Australia.
      I find when travelling Australia there are no 'old' buildings apart from Melbourne and Sydney.

    1. Amazingly it doesn't look out of place with those colours on the building. Will be interesting to see what colours are chosen in the future.

    1. Thanks.
      S9ometimes hard to take photos if too many people and cars are about, but I chose a quiet day.

  20. Great photos Margaret.
    Not TOO many people would be aware the dates
    of when places after 1788 came into existence in
    Australia. As you point out Tassie has two of the first
    three - Hobart and then Launceston.
    Cheers
