It's funny to see some of the old signage we used to have. I am not sure about other countries but it's no longer called Kentucky Fried Chicken here. It's KFC. They have done a lot to remove themselves from that "fried" word...but we all still know it's fried chicken. ;D
I love the photo of the sheep that seems to be looking towards the camera.
Thanks for the look back. My new Aussie husband and I moved to Australia in 1991. It looked quaint to my American eyes--the cars, clothes, buildings, etc. When we visited in 2008 so much had changed--things looked more modernized and the demographic was more diverse.
Yes, the demographics have changed enormously. One thing that I remember from my trips there is that when people detected that I did not have the local accent, they would ask when I had arrived (as an immigrant). Outside of places like Sydney and Melbourne, they could not imagine that anybody would come that far just to visit their country.
Stickybeak, do you have any photos to show us regarding "before" and "after"? They are always the most interesting.
Hi Kerouac2, it only took me 6 months to get back to you, heh heh sorry about that...
I don't think I have photos of the same places showing before and after, just of new and rebuilt places such as Federation Square and the Spencer St. Station in Melbourne, for example. Insides of new, fancy restaurants. New highways. Stuff like that. They're already 6 years old and by the time we get back there (tentatively planned for 2018), they'll be the "before" pics, probably! There's a lot going on in my life right now so hopefully when things settle down I'll post a few pictures from that year. (BTW it's funny but my kid is reading "On the Road" right now.)
