Our ANZAC Day public holiday took us for a drive to Clunes, not far from Ballarat.
A busy little town with hoards of people enjoying the sunshine after the morning Dawn Service at it's local memorial. Clunes was one of the first towns to strike gold in the Gold Rush, 1851.
Corrugated iron and old windows go well together.
This Drapery shop door, could no doubt tell a lot of stories of the ladies entering it for their haberdashery and linen supplies. I wonder what fabrics it sold for quilts?
The era of hanging wallpaper.
Bottles of yesteryear were so attractive compared to the ones of today.
Window display in the Union Bank 1865
Buildings and shops fronts that have stood the test of time.
The Town Hall and Police Court, 1872.
Autumn sunshine and fallen leaves.
Sitting by Lake Wendouree, Ballarat, for a late lunch.
