Strathalbyn is one of these few towns in Australia where things seem to kepp unchanged for decades. With its antique stores, main street covered with verandas and charming coffee terraces, it makes you travel back in  to the early part of last century. Today, the feeling was even stronger since a club of Packard owners suddenly drove into town. The setting was therefore complete to somewhat recreate an Australian street the atmosphere of Strathalbyn in the 30’s – 50’s with a 2011 film … processing I meant.

It gets so hot in Adelaide in Summer that stops at the local bars are often needed. When I saw this scene though, I thought I was in Paris again.  (click on picture for high res)

Coming back to yesterday’s post, I stood corrected by my mother. Actually, only partially. While pictures ofhis stay in Australia do not exist, some portraits of his late years did survive.

Don’t you think there is street feel to it ? ;)  And I am sure that B&W lovers will appreciate the tonalities. (My apologies for the low resolution).
