Exploring Warwick QLD Australia …

We went to Warwick QLD Australia today intending to take some photos of the magnificent old 1800s buildings there.

Unfortunately it is too busy of a Saturday and we will go back on a quiet Sunday afternoon when I should be able to get better pictures of those in the main street.

Anyway had a nice roast pork lunch at the RSL club and here is a sample of old buildings taken with my phone. Please click an image …

Old houses 13 March 2016…

My friends seem mad on sharing images of old houses and buildings at the moment.

So I thought I would collect some to share with you.

Please click an image to view a slideshow of full size images and where I know the location it is shown…

I grew up in an area of Sydney Australia which had been developed in the mid 1800’s and lived in a couple of houses similar to a few of these.

I think they are beautiful much better than the modern rubbish that I live in now!

Hope you enjoyed the gallery. 🙂

c.1823. Rose Hill Avenue, Versailles, Kentucky

Please visit For The Love Of Old Houses where I have found a lot of the images.
