What might that symbol be on the arch in the photo below the PO?

A chartered bank, superior to a non chartered bank. Oh, it went broke.

Great photos. What lovely old buildings the town is full of. Especially love the gate.

As far as I know, Andrew, it's just a decorative feature on (what was originally the court house but swapped to become) the town hall.
Not sure of any significance.

Thanks, Kiwi, that gate could tell some tales, eh?
It's a restful town.
Thanks for the reference to the NZ Dunolly school, too :)

What a great chimney. Love the cabin view. Very serene.

Surprise glimpse of House Sparrow in pipe: priceless.

The second-last photo is a treat!

Santa's porkshop (sic), though, is creepy.
