Spaceship Inspired designed Petrol Station Demolished
View Larger Map
These twin oval shaped designs that formed part of this petrol station in Launceston have been demolished. Buildings most at risk are those in our recent past - looking back at all periods of history, each style at some stage was at risk. It's only with hindsight that people say things like "what were they thinking do demolish all those wonderful buildings" This very thing happens today with many 20th Century buildings being altered or demolished. Sadly it takes the process of time for our recent past to be acknowledged as important to our social and cultural fabric.
