Friday/ the Albany from yesteryear

Here are some of the older buildings around York Street and Princess Royal Drive in old historic downtown Albany.

The Albany town hall was its first civic building. It opened in 1888.

The ‘London Hotel’ is on Princess Royal Street. It is the oldest licensed hotel in Western Australia, first built in 1856 and rebuilt after a major fire in 1909.

This train came steaming through the main station in Albany this morning. It is westbound, towards the town of Denmark.

This beautiful old gazebo overlooks the main train station.

    • hallo Martin –
      Ons was al op Rotnest eiland, ja. Die strande daar is baie mooi. Ek is bly Ma het by julle aangekom vir Kersfees. As ons haar nie by julle in die hande kry nie (ek dink ek het julle telefoonnommer), sal ons haar by die woonstel in die hande kry ‘n paar dae later!

      Geseende Kersfees vir julle almal daar ook.
      Willem
