Bangalow: Now & Then

Bangalow's main street has undergone huge changes, especially over the last twenty years. This is typified by the 1908 row of 4 shops known as 'The Strand'. Today it is real estate and coffee, coffee and more coffee.

It 1908 it was hessian bags of produce, the delightfully named C.A Wulff & Co's Boot Palace and a barber shop.

Linking to the Friday Skywatch meme.

  6. Thankfully they haven't pulled them down. The question is, however, is it good coffee?

  7. I think it's remarkable that the buildings have stayed pretty much the same! The whole streetscape is so well preserved. In terms of the differences in types of merchandise - well times do change!
    Nice post, Mark!
