Extinct view up Warwick Street Hobart as captured on a cheap camera last century as a man made his way up Murray Street one sunny day on his way home. A most opportune photo.

And what is wrong with being a chocolate box painter or even a paperback writer? Is there not an inate dignity in work?

Sandy Point Beach late march 2007.

Sandy Point Beach late march 2007

Here noone talks of the blackfellas (except as a footnote in a brochure) who to my eyes are not to be seen here anymore. One of the place’s extinct species. The whitefella has divided, subdivided, hunted, fished, swam, profited and now today, when I read the paper, is also winning the culture war. With fearless warriors Windshuttle and Bolt at the fore soon the blackfella’s sad fate will be mentioned no more.

Read a local history page and find out more.
