Adelaide, Capital City SA.
Please click on photos to enbiggen.
There is a weekly indoor Sunday Market in the old Port Adelaide area, it is held in an enormous old warehouse and is very popular and well patronized. I spent about an hour browsing happily among the thousands of books heaped so casually on the tables at this stall.
The warehouse is about 150 yards long and 50 yards wide with a second floor level around the sides, a lot of the stall holders leave their stock there permanently rather than pack it all up at the close of the day, thus the stalls are in the main jammed full of whatever goods they sell, one of the better market places I've been to.
We came across this note left out for the Junk Mail deliverer while on a Sunday drive.
In case some of you are not familiar with "Junk Mail" it is the advertising brochures put into suburban letter boxes on a weekly delivery run, the only protection from this onslaught is to put a sign on your letter box which states "No Junk Mail" the letter box above must have been protected by such a sign by the previous tenant!!!
A sample of the brochures that arrive sometimes twice a week at the Foster unit.
This monument, looking very much like the leaning tower of Pizza is on our regular route to the clinic, it is odd in that so many of the surfaces and planes are on an angle that it looks in some danger of toppling over.
In fact though all the vertical walls are straight as is the right hand side of the spire, there are many sloping surfaces and the left hand side of the spire is also sloped creating the illusion that everything is off square, just why anyone would build a monument that created this illusion is more than I can work out!!!!!
