Postcard from - Kyogle

In a small northern NSW town an hour or so drive from the coast, we stopped for a break and a look round. You can still park in the middle of the street, there are art deco buildings here and there, and a few shops have the original stained glass above the door.

Along the main street and to the right is a "collectables" shop. The kind of place that used to exist decades ago, but now seldom does. It has all the things that your grannie loved - EPNS sugar bowls, second world war surplus gear, a few postcards, lots of books and National Geographic magazines and rows of glassware. It also had a friendly, elderly guy with an impressive beard who was willing to have a chat while you browsed.

According to a street sign, from 2010 to some time in 2013, it's also been a dry town, but presumably not now.
