Town square


The old cement "candle" was destroyed, but behind the old shops a new town square has been built. It's attractive and functional linking together community buildings and preserves some older heritage buildings. We are all looking forward to seeing the new town that will eventually emerge. I'll be back with another progress report when things move on a bit more, probably a year away.

That's it for this series. Over at Sweet Wayfaring I'm beginning a very hot day trip to Mudgee today.

  1. Good montage, but look at some of them there clouds!

    That fetish for concrete adornment is wierd, I agree. A bit like the penchant some people have for gnomes. Not my style of thing.

    The photos give me heart. I quite like the concept of the European square around which nestle the types of stores that the villagers us and in which there are trees for shades and benches for rest.

    I suspect that the socio-economic grouping of the good folk of Lawson has altered since the 20s and 30s.

  2. I love town squares. We have plazas which sort of function as town squares. I'm glad to see they're creating a blend of old and new. I hope you're happy with it when it's finished.
