Looking almost exactly as it did when built in 1880 Thoona Stores and PO is one of the places that you should try and visit when in the area as is the pub on the opposite side of the road..

This old shop front reminds me very much of rural shops in South Africa Les. The shady stoep with a few places to sit, the straggly plants and gravel road are all so similar. I bet you can buy all manner of items inside too and when the shopping is complete a quick detour across the road sounds like a good idea! Nicely done.... how was the beer? Warm regards Rosemary

A touch of nostalgia about this well presented composition. I like the point of view and the excellent light and colours. Lots of interesting detail as well.

On dirait un retour en arrière ou le magasin général faisait aussi office de station d'essence. Le point de vue est superbe et la luminosité excellente.

this is a wonderful shot, full of character and a real merchant that looks like he sells everything you could possibly want, including petrol! A glimpse back in time I suppose but it is an attractive and compelling image. My sort of store - opposite a pub ;-).

Hello Leslie. A photo opportunity from the good old days of the Wild West. But the time has not stood still, as we see at the pump. The photo would certainly work well as a black and white image.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

Good photo of this old General Store. Loads of character typical of many old buildings in Australian country towns. I imagine that to European eyes this style of architecture does look a bit wild-west-like.

This is a fabulous shot from rural Australia and I suppose this sort of store is just the way I would have imagined they might be. And I guess the only real change here in over a century has been the addition of a petrol pump!
A wonderfully clear and sharp picture with lovely light and colours and a nice strong diagonal composition. Lots of interesting things to look at and examine here too, especially when viewed at full size.
