I have always looked upon decay as being just as wonderful and rich an expression of life as growth.

History can be found anywhere. Elizabeth Street, Hobart. September 2010.

Here you can see a ye olde time billboard (e?), advertising a long-since departed service station in Elizabeth Street, right smack bang in the middle of town. These days, you will struggle to find a service station anywhere that close to the CBD, they’ve all been bought up and converted into alcohol outlets (I kid you not).

One day, I wonder what people will make of what we have done to our city.

I think they'll be alright, as long as they have their big t.v. screen to look at. Remember 10 Murray?

Moran and Cato. One of the first supermarkets in Australia.
Not to be confused with any oil company.

Self service? As in "get your own stuff from the shelves"?

One and the same. I don't know who bought them out. I'm sure it would be one of the big two.
