RyanPhotography-WeeklyPC-68-Facade

~~~~~~

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

Water Front Campus

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.
