I thought I might add a few of my photos....

Doorway - AMP Chambers, Auburn Street, Goulburn (NSW):



Sydney - The Rocks, Playfair Street



The Grand Hotel, Healesville, Victoria - a rather strange combination of a Victorian era French Empire style building, with a 1932 Art Deco Veranda:

Being on holiday in Tasmania doesn't mean my modeller's eye gets a rest, lots of new inspiration around.
One thing I have noticed, both on the in-laws house and some others, is the use of a dark coloured mortar for the bricks as opposed to white or lighter coloured mortar. Could use this on buildings for something different or to cover up problems.


Cheers

Tony

Quite a lot of Victorian houses in the UK (at least in my area) have black mortar between the bricks. Not sure why, maybe they used some coal dust mixed in with the cement, since the Midlands once had an awful lot of collieries, so no shortage of dust.
