A lot of them are old pubs, there used to be something silly like 30 pubs in the main street (or so I've heard) a lot of them are still there but they are now used for a different purpose.
Some are still pubs though.
I love art deco anything really .. and this just caught my eye.
Then there were the just awesome buildings .. they really took their time to put in those special little touches back then .. even in a mining town in the middle of the desert.
Court was on that day so I really couldn't get a photo of the court house, there were a few people milling around who I didn't think would like it if I was pointing a camera at them .. but it was an amazing building as court houses often are.
We'd noticed a sign the day before about a show that we decided was just too good to miss, so we headed towards the civic centre. On the way I was chuffed to notice that I wasn't the only person who had trouble parking a bike in nose to curb angle parking spots ..
And the show at the civic centre?
A vintage bike show!! All of the bikes here were from Broken Hill except only about 4 or 5.
I found a lot of bikes that took my fancy.
As I often see Tiger pics from a Troubadour blogger this one had to have a pic taken. There were a lot of Triumphs.
As well as other classics.
British bikes do attract me, and with a sidecar ... wow
Terry got talking with one of the organisers .. so I dumped the camera bag with him and took more pics ...
Cruiser Love ..
What about the scooters I hear you scream .. they were there.
And of course I did like looking at the slightly newer Honda's ..
It was bike heaven.
But my favourite was ..
It's a Honda 125 racing something or another .. right I read the sign and photographed it so I'd remember but the photo didn't work and I don't remember all the details. All I remember is that I loved it and wanted to take it home with me.
So with a healed arm and a heart full of bikes ... the need to ride came on strong. We rushed home and got the bikes out of the shed .. but that's a story for another day .. I'll tell you all about our ride and where we ended up in the next post :)
