From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Spheres by Bert Flugelman; two large stainless steel spheres with a diameter of 2.15 metres balanced one on top of the other. They are most commonly referred to as the Mall’s Balls orRundle Mall balls. “The Mall’s Balls” are a common meeting place for visitors.[3] Erected in 1977, they were commissioned by the then Hindmarsh Building Society (subsequently absorbed into the Adelaide Bank) and donated to the City of Adelaide to mark the building society’s 1977 centenary.[4]

The View From The Marines

If you are ever in Adelaide take a trip down to Grange Jetty, from there you will see these wonderfully restored Terrace Houses

I have always loved these houses as they remind me of England.

(The year the Marines were constructed, 1882, was the peak of the land boom in Adelaide

The terrace of houses is of architectural significance because it was designed in the grand style of similar buildings at English seaside resorts and has a rarity value as one of the few remaining three-storied terrace houses in South Australia.)

I decided to go for a short walk along Winters Rd in Williamstown very early just before the sun was about to come up.

Williamstown is a small South Australian town on the fringe of the Barossa Valley wine-growing region and the Adelaide Hills. It is 51 km north east of Adelaide
