Old Scots Church

(Freo visit, June 2007)

Old Scots Church South Terrace Fremantle

Old Scots Church on South Terrace. The Freo Markets are on the left of this building and the footy oval (Carn the Bulldogs!) is slightly visible in the right background.

Notice the red-and-white theme similar to that of the Markets. It's seen often in Freo. This building might belong in the Victorian Free Classical style too but don't quote me on that, I'm too buggered to look it up.

Freo had a bit of wind as well. The bloke on the roof is putting a tarp over some damaged tiles.

The weird markings on the photo are grafitti on the window of the CAT bus. CAT stands for Free Bus For Keeping Cars Out Of The CBD and the CAT bus runs on a circuit round Freo from South Beach to the Freo Museum via the Round House. Very handy.

Taken the day before the wind. Spot what part of the church is missing from the photo above.

Right then. That's yer lot for today. I'm buggered.

Looks a bit gaudy to me, like it doesn't quite know if it's a church or a castle, but nice.

OK, so I cam by yesterday and didn't comment. Well, I was going to but got distracted by all the posts I hadn't read. By the time I'd finished, I forgot I hadn't left a comment. Rubbish, eh?

So here I am. Ummmm...

Oh, here's the 'e' I left out.

Suzanne - hadn't ever looked at it that way before. It was always just there. But now you mention it...

Device dear, you have stolen my 2007 brain. However, you may keep it.

Spare e's always appreciated.

The little stone cross isn't in the pic at the top - was that what went through the roof below?

Ladies and gentleman, we have a winner!
