I haven’t taken leave of my senses!
These Hobbit images were posted
for their circular content last week.
This week I re-posted them
(and here is a spoiler alert)
because they are only facades
Very few Hobbit houses have
any capacity/room behind the front door.
For all intents and purposes the houses
are only three or four feet deep.
From memory, there was only one house
which had any storage room inside
and that was very limited.
They are simply an addition to the hillside.
Geelong’s Deakin University
Until the late 1960s/early 70s this building
was Dalgety’s Wool Store.
During wool sales wool belonging to
wool producers from all over Victoria and
into new South Wales would have their
wool on display for buyers’ appraisal before sale.
Today the waterfront area of Geelong still is home
to many of these red brick buildings.
Their facade is the only reminder of their
original purpose, for those of us
old enough to remember.
