22/01/2017   Photo a Day   In my town

From the Dept. Heritage NSW Gov.

The Bathurst street and park lamp standards (105 in total) are a major element of nineteenth and early twentieth century street furniture that contributes to the distinctive historical character of the central civic and business areas of Bathurst. They are situated in Bathurst's central parks, Machattie and King's Parade and line the centre of six main streets. Installed between 1872 and 1924 when electricity replaced gas, the lamp posts are unusual in design, incorporating Victorian bases and Art Deco elements. The lamps posts are intact and in generally good condition. Comprising a large group of street lamps, they form a distinctive civic landmark in Bathurst and are rare in New South Wales.

18/01/2017   Photo a Day Today

Over night in Bathurst was very hot last night and the ceiling fan in my bedroom stopped working, so today I raced out and bought a pedestal fan to use until I can get a new ceiling fan installed.
Of course like everything these days it had to be put together which means I have to assemble it with some cursing peppered throughout.And then it was tested by my sleeping companions.
