hkskyline's 2008 ADELAIDE #3 - A Walk in the City

68. I wlked down Hindley Street back towards Light Square. Past Rundle Mall, this street seems to disintegrate a little bit, losing that flare of the shoppers' paradise.





70. In a way, this street scene looks like small town America.



71. Yet on the other side of the street rests this beauty.



72. The general store?



73. Meets the skyscraper ...















80. Upon returning to the main street, monuments await. First .. a huge skyscraper.



81. Next, a 'church tower'?

















89. Hey ... an old-style tram like the ones in Melbourne!





91. Heading back towards North Terrace ...





93. The autumn sunshine is bright.















100. For some reason, I went inside the State Library for a curious look, and I was not disappointed.

Reminds of me of Memphis or New Orleans but without the slums.
