So great. Victoria is awesome. Can't wait to see the heritage plaque or whatever.
Council has decided to ban heritage plaques because like plastic bags they only get used once and are not recycled on multiple buildings :rolleyes:

They also become troublesome in the future when it comes time to re-write or erase history to suit the narrative of the time.
That's true. Heritage buildings are a small matter to wipe out, but people would flip if you tried to alter a heritage plaque.
As this 1940s aerial pic of the Fairfield/Moss St. neighbourhood illustrates, Victorians are obsessed with keeping their city frozen in time, never changing, staunchly preserving its old buildings and its historic built form, etc.
(Seriously, if this is what hardcore resistance to change gets you then I don't want to know what the neighbourhood would look like if Victorians were really eager to wipe stuff out.)
