The good old days

 Hastings Street, Noosa, is one of the world's great addresses, or so some would have you think.  Why that's the Sheraton Noosa reflected in the window!

But forty years ago, when I was a callow youth, studying architecture by night and working as a draftsman by day, this building was one of the first multi storey buildings in Hastings Street.   In fact it had two.

It was built as an upmarket adjunct to the Pine Trees Caravan Park, all mission brown and dark brick.

Now it sits vacant and decaying.

A reflection of myself perhaps?
