Some epic conversions here! Especially the storm clouds.

Not sure about other countries but here in Melbourne the real estate sales folk would advertise this as a "Renovator's Delight".
It was nice to see that the fly screens over the louvre windows were intact though !
It was taken at Point Nepean- the old quarantine station.

I don't often do the B/W thing but thought these might suit a conversion.

On of the local pubs is being knocked down. There are so many in the village and this one is non central and so was not frequented enough.

Since the non-smoking laws and the recession most pubs are struggling. We rarely 'went to the pub' and go even less now.  In facte rarely drink as it's very expensive.

However..............this poor pub was the one I met Mr W in - or to be more precise the place where I first 'allowed' him to 'court me' 15 1/2 years ago ;) We were married withing 4 months!

I digress - this is what remained of the pub this weekend and today it is mostly rubble.

BTW - I've enjoyed looking at all your images!

These images are stitches as I had to reach right over the wire fences that enclose the demolition site. That moveable live view screen is very handy ;)

Mono suits this sort of image Pat.  I hope you can salvage a souvenir brick as a momento...john

Sad to see a place with such significance to you go. Though in the third photo I do love the "To Let" sign hanging on the remaining wall. Very nice conversions.
