Take a seat/ A stroll along Main Road Moonah.

Today I took a stroll along Main Rd Moonah in search of interesting things to photograph for the various photo challenges. I also hoped to get some pictures of the old benches outside the post office. I got them but was disappointed that the council had made them all grey. These used to be different colours and really stood out as fifties / sixties art at one time. I remember some being yellow and some blue. I can’t remember if they were ever tiled or not. These have a terrazzo look to them but are now a very dull concrete grey and they are not the same anymore. Here are a couple of shots I took of them.



I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
