Thursday’s Lingering Look at Windows : Week 8

Springbrook community hall

More interesting details from our trip up the mountain

I found this colourful mural on the wall of the community hall in the small Springbrook village in the centre of the rainforest we explored a couple of days age. It is very detailed and quite fascinating to work out what is a painted window and which is the real window.

Can you see which is which?

Can you tell which are the real windows and which are paintings?

A short way along the road and we came to the old school-house. No longer used it still had old-fashioned desks and books showing the work of the young pupils from when the school opened in the early 1900’s.

Looking out of the window you can see the stump of a 1000 year old New England Blackbutt.

The school-house was built in 1910 and a year later the magnificent 40 metre high Blackbutt was considered a threat to the safety of the building so was felled and burnt. The sad thing was that if the school had been built a mere 50 metres away the tree could’ve remained.

Now surely the planners and builders could see that tree when they first made plans to build a school in that spot…

Each week on Thursday Dawn of “the day after” asks that we post photos of windows we have come across. Having this weekly challenge opens your eyes to the amazing type and style of windows you can find. See what you can find, you may like to show them off in this challenge.
