Happiness as Anarchy #48: Country Towns

I love the wide streets and varied architecture of little country towns. Camperdown’s main street has a great green strip down the middle with rows of huge trees on either side. Both sides have two-way traffic, and apparently the street is as wide as a bullock train’s turning circle, which was essential when the region was supplying Melbourne with agricultural produce. The clock tower and the decorative buildings attest to the town’s wealth in the late 19th and early 20th century.
