Disposal Heritage

Disposal Heritage

Thanks to Louise Jones for these images, and for being alert enough to notice our heritage dying, and then noticing when it is given an all to early death.

See this gorgeous but dilapidated home in Brown Hill (once part of Ballarat East) January this year?

How long will it take to have some protection for the modest heritage out here in the East?
