I find this one the most interesting of the 3. I like the way the squares and rectangles are broken up by the circles.


I had never looked at it that way - Thank you very much for your thoughts!

Nice work. If this is what I think it is....

"Constructed in 1887, this building was erected for the early Italian settler P.V. Armati. The building is of the classic style with the parapet topped by a draped urn. The building’s name commemorates the jubilee of Queen Victoria."

Imagine the pride of Senor Armati et al after completing this project only a few years after the railroad came to town.... they must have thought the sky was the limit. Although clean and grafitti-less in this shot, it doesn't look now like anyone has cared for many moons, a burden.

History lesson. Give that man an ice cream.

Maybe you'd like to tell the rest of us what/where it is?

I believe this place to be in a possible minor paradise called Townsville North Queensland in the Land Down Under near Magnetic Island, where the sun is said to shine 320 days a year !

Situated in northern Australia, it may have it all..... the Great Barrier Reef, the Rainforest the Outback and Indigenous culture all at it's dooryard.
