More of those pretty arches and the shopping area is so neat and tidy!
Was Good Friday when I took the photos - the Council takes great pride in keeping the city clean.
I love the shape and architecture here.
It is lovely.
Launceston looks a nice place with beautiful buildings.
Launceston is the 3rd oldest city in Australia and building architecture done by the English, Irish and Scottish way back.
Pretty buildings and so well-preserved.
They are certainly well looked after.
It is amazing how many of these wonderful old institution buildings have now been made redundant - I suspect that much of it is to do with internet banking, insurance, etc.
It is such a pity Rosemary. There are shops in most of the building and upstairs I expect are the store rooms and or offices.
really impressive and look old
I suppose they are old Gosia, built in the late 1800's.
Good images of a excellent urban architecture.Kisses
They look elegant. And charming. As newer city centres so rarely do.
Nothing like the old buildings, the newer ones don't look the part.
Thank you for this wonderful tour
You are welcome.
Great to see they've been preserved and are in good condition still.
Be dreadful is those building were in disrepair.
It's almost as if Old England got together with turn of the century (the last one) American. Almost--- but not really. Things there have a look all their own. Thanks for sharing.
You are welcome.I think it's always good to have a city that looks like itself rather than look like another.
As it seems presently with this "never ending FOR US, anyhow" Federal Electioncampaign I see that tourism promotion is high on the agenda of both major partiesfor Tasmania. The old buildings - once banks etc. if not in use could be EASILY turned intoB & B's and backpacker hostels. You certainly take your photos early as no people seem to up and about in the MALL.Colin
Those buildings are in use thank goodness, mostly shops these days.Photos taken Good Friday Colin - that is why no one is about.
You do have some wonderful buildings I like that they are not skyscrapers. Merle..........
Definitely no high buildings in Launceston - left that for the larger cities.
I must say, the city looks much nicer than when we last visited, including the mall.
I'm pleased there is a great improvement in our city to your last visit. The Mall area is really looking good these days.
They're so nicely maintained, really beautiful to look at.
Unfortunately not that many people shop in the city these days. We shop locally and only go to town if really necessary.
Aren't those buildings amazing.Have a great weekend.
Yes they are and thanks.....you too.
Lovely buildings, they just .look America
That maybe true of some buildings.
The buildings look impressive.Love the photo of The Mall and the planted out flower/plant containers.It also looks very clean ... no litter.Enjoy your weekendAll the best Jan
Launceston city seems to be a clean area which is good to see.
There seems to be so many elegant buildings in Launceston. It is nice to see them embracing their history.
They are great older buildings, we have a few newer ones too, but I didn't take photos of those.
ahh here we rarely find such cleanliness very few areas in very big cities have such views ,we live in small town and luckily this city owns the residency of chief minister of our province so the local machinery works properly and tries to keep it clean otherwise they just take salaries no or very less efficiency ,loved looking at these beautiful buildings pleasure to eyes really
Pleased you enjoyed looking at the buildings.There is a 'fine' here is rubbish is not put in the 'bins' provided. All citizens obey this law, well usually :)
Schöne Bilder von den alten Gebäuden.GrußNoke
These buildings look beautiful !! I like old buildings because they have their own history !Happy weekend !
Thanks Ela - plenty of history and character in those buildings.
I like these older buildings. So many windows and the masonry on the outside have such great patterns.
Lovely patterns, not seen in the buildings today.
Great architectural pieces no doubt. Fine and delicate.
That's true - delicate.
It really looks like a grand and stately town.
It's a small city but it's nice.
