Abandoned Tasmanian Petrol Stations - A common sight
A common site throughout Tasmania are former petrol service stations. Many are abandoned, whilst some have been converted into other uses. Some former stations are in such a bad state such as this one in Burnie I photographed in a previous blog. An end of an era in terms of what were often small family run businesses and in relation to the 50/60s style that were so common in many Australian cities and towns.
