Surely the Arts Centre must wait until the dog fighting arena is completed? And from what I can see, the arts, particularly karaoke and lawn bowls are booming. And I add a couple of shots for the benefit of BSWAM. Kalgoorlie has some great gold boom architecture (1890s) above street level, while downstairs ugly shop fronts have been chopped out, displaying fashions that someone from Belmont wouldn’t be seen in. And the town is also full of cunts. I guess it must be like Albany New York now that Thurston Howell has gone?kal1kal2kal3kal4kal5kal7kal8

  1. That’s vibrant vomit and squashed chips on the bowls hall of famer btw.


  2. Snuff says:

    Great to see they also have karaoke in Hay Street these days. But why are those cars so clean? Where’s the red dust? I’m confused.


  3. Bento says:

    How many arts centres do these water-stealing bumpkins need??

    Those Royalties for Regions dollars won’t spend themselves, you know?


  5. vegan says:

    liberal house, right next to mining people. and in the smaller office. that sounds about right.


  6. Ljuke says:

    It looks so much like Gosnells!


  7. BSWAM says:

    Kalgoorlie looks more like an Australian Red Hook – somewhere lived in enough to have worn off the ye olde quaint without losing the bones. It lacks Albany, NY’s gruesome we’re-still-stuck-in-1932-and-voting-for-Hoover quality…

    …to say nothing of the Super-Villains Headquarters Architectural Derby that constitutes the Capitol district, where every generation or so, the city attempted to build a bigger, more expensive and uglier version of the same structure — and succeeded.

    Note in picture linked above: world’s largest 19th century Bulgarian post office; State Corinthian Column Containment Area; Darth Vader’s beach cabana; Flying Saucers Vs. Last Place on Earth You’d Look For Them; acre or so of spare travertine (for the kids!); and Henry Hobson Richardson’s least-seen building. Note also: shadow cast by monolith from Kubrick horror film. Not shown: directly adjacent Fascist Deco skyscraper; Birdcage-Gothic Transportation offices; haunted mansion national zoo; Klingon University; abandoned cathedral; remaining portion of downtown that has not caved in all the way yet.


  8. Was it you TLA that defaced the carved mirror – or rather de-boozied? There’s a piece of the carving been torn off. It’s a boozie bit.
    Water stealing bumpkins indeed!
