Heritage Fest 2

image

There was a good turnout of British cars at the Guildford Heritage Festival in Perth on Sunday, including the Morries (Morris Minors) above and Trumpies (Triumphs) below. The Triumph on the left is a 1929 Super 7 Sports.

The Australian built Leyland P76 s were also out in force, with their distinctive 1970s wedge shape and colours.

Heritage Fest

image

We went along to the Guildford Heritage Festival yesterday, in the historic town of Guildford on the east side of Perth. There were plenty of vintage and classic cars to admire, including this striking 1910 single-cylinder REO. And a display of vintage racing motorbikes as well.

Plus a large market with stalls selling fruit, veg, crafts, antiques and much more. All presented under blue skies and shady trees.

Wild Perth

image

There are some surprisingly wild looking places in Perth. We stopped to admire this view yesterday afternoon. Where do you think it is?

A few hints: The water on the left is the Swan River, and the city centre is just off the left side of the photo. Yes, it is Blackwall Reach, looking upstream. The photo below is looking downstream towards Fremantle.

Bridges over Troubled Water 6

image

This impressive bridge is not far from the Lennox Bridge that we featured yesterday, but is much less well known. It is the Knapsack Viaduct at Lapstone, at the base of the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. It was completed in 1867 and served initially as a rail bridge.

It then became part of the Great Western Highway, but is now just used by walkers and cyclists since the highway has been rerouted. It gives an odd sensation that you should look over your shoulder, just in case some lost motorist is hurtling along behind.
