Nolla

Sometimes there’s a need for a post like this. A pointer to a time when a Nollamaran might have been expected to don the whites and hire a tennis court. They might have had high tea too. With Noel Coward. By Orbea.nollamara dreams

    just when you think Twop has lost its mojo, it serves an ace

    a bit like Roger Federer

    it’s Wimbledon fortnight soon, and this court will be crawling with eager players, keen to enjoy those brief two weeks when people give a shit about the sport

    Shucks, thanks for the generous comments. There are fewer and fewer examples of ‘old’ Nollamara left. The ‘new’ Nollamara is becoming a superb example of BAD urban planning.

    Great Layout Orbea & look at those palms in the middle pic. Can anyone take a shot in Perth without a palm? Would they want to?

    Nice work Orbea. Particularly like the miserable busted up table in the foreground. For sipping one’s Pimms-n-lemonade at presumably.

    The lighting is beautiful Orbea. You really captured the moment.

    Us residents tend to think of it rather as West Yokine or North Yokine or Something Yokine. Anything Yokine. Hoping for Nollamara to disappear.
