A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

A really nice try.

The restoration work on the old ES&A Bank in Landsborough has found exactly the right balance between providing a bit of the flavour of the old building and not taking itself too seriously I think. The lettering is undoubtedly not too close a facsimile of what it once was, but in its context it works.

When the building was opened in 1922 it was the first resident agency for the bank in Queensland and has undergone many changes since those days when it was a ten by fifteen feet room, and it's nice to see some allusions to its past history remain in spite of them.

Taking the shot on an angle gives it visual interest. I like the contrast against the sky.

Thanks, please let me know if I did right on the feed url.
