Fremantle Windows

The Fremantle Post Office was built in 1907 and is now listed on the Australian National Heritage List for places of outstanding heritage significance.  Note the arched and square windows in this magnificent old building….well ‘old’ by our standards.

  1. When my ex and I were together I told him the story of how I came to shoot barns. He was just beginning his photographic journey and decided to shoot post offices. At first I thought it rather a lame idea but soon I became involved in the hunt. The older ones were always our favorites because of the architectural designs added. Post offices these days reflect the economic times; boring.

      • It actually wasn’t that cold really. Or not to me, after all you are inside with central heating and when you go out, you are rugged up with coats and boots and you keep moving. I recall it was around – 7 at the most.

      • In 1980 it snowed down to 600 metres. I drove through that and is the only time I have ever seen fresh snow. We have experienced our first of 4 forty plus degree days. Saturday, or late Friday the temp is expected to drop 20 degree. It is amazing how climates are perceived in different parts of the world. Low teens is cold and under 10 at night….freezing.

      • I agree. The other day it was 23 here in the sub tropics and I thought yeh pretty comfortable in BrisVegas. But then it can also be 23 in winter and I wear feel a need to wear more clothing ( longer sleeves etc… why?). Also 6 degrees in Europe does not feel the same as 6 degrees here. The houses are insulated there, so maybe your body does not cool down for as long as here… I am not sure. How did you go in the extreme heat? Headaches? Melting bitumen? Must be awful. I am much better in the cold. – much more energy.

      • I think I miss interpreted a sentence in your lasst message (I recall it was around – 7 at the most.) as Minus 7 degrees. Seven does sound right for BrisVegas. Haven’t spent much time in Brisbane, but did venture up to the Gold Coast a couple of years ago. Cairns the previous year. We did note that it was colder in the Gold Coast (than Cairns) and that it had become more commercialised in the past 25 years.

        The bitumen was melting at Lochard Gorge (Jan 4, 2013). Today, I have spent mostly watching the tennis…from the comfort of my arm chair. Alas work tomorrow.

      • The minus 7 was when I was swedish Lapland, ( the photo with the long icicles at the window). Sorry for the confusion. Brisbane rarely get down to 7… never minus 7 unfortunatley, but yeh, it was 23 here the other day. That is slightly unusual for this time of year, but much preferable to the usual 30 – 37 degree temps in January/February. Thanks for our comment. Crazy to think it is that hot near the Twelve Apostles.Yet they still play tennis. Crazy. Yep.. work for me tomorrow too.
