In Need Of Some TLC


I came across this crumbling beauty the other day. I think the screen door adds comedy value.

This Queenslander is sitting under a typical Brisbane sky, so I've registered it on Skywatch Friday. Check out other skies from around the world here.

That is a grand example of a derelict "Queenslander" which I suspect will be bulldozed rather than renovated. Indeed, the screen-door is a puzzlement - what were they thinking!

I must tell Letitia from Ararat DP. She will love this post.

A beautiful old house. I so love these old Queenslanders. Makes me homesick for the years i lived in Cairns.

Julie was right!
I DO love this photo.
I'll take as many photos as you care to give us of Queenslander homes.
Especially the decrepit ones!

So do you think there is someone living there..and the screen door is so they don't fall out ?

Good one!
