There is no doubt that my home city Armidale is an attractive city. Tonight just a few random photos to show you.
The first photo by Gordon Smith just shows a local general store.
Just a street scene. But look at the sky. Autumn in Armidale is quite beautiful. Cool bright days, cold nights. Look, too, at the colours of the paint. The ute (utility) on the left shows that it is a country scene.
The next shot, again by Gordon, shows a foreshortened shot up to the old Armidale Teachers' College.
The house below, 65 Mann Street, is presently for sale for $759,000. This is one of the many mansions built in Armidale's inner city.
This is, in fact, the house my grandparents lived in for a number of years. The agent's description says:
“Opawa” dates to 1896 and was built by Samuel Herbert, the local government architect, as his own home. The interior of the house contains many magnificent cedar joinery features.
“Opawa” has been renovated over the last three years and is now presented in pristine condition. Superb quality curtaining, carpeting, and light fittings add to the opulent feel of the home. Central heating, selected under floor heating and reverse cycle air-conditioned are all features. The grounds of the house are substantial and include a covered pergola, private seating area and a large rear north facing deck.
