Petrol Station & Gararge No More
This former petrol station owned and operated as part of a farm block on Tasmania's East Coast is now a fading memory. There were many such buildings that farmers used to operate, but like many independent owned petrol stations & Garages around Tasmania, there are few and far between. The things I like about the scene are the flowers popping up out of the concrete, as if to show that life goes on. Also the petrol tank to the left that still has the "super" label on it, the lead petrol that stopped production many years ago now.
