I've taken the free Melbourne Town Hall tour before. The link to my post is here. It was a much better post than this one. The tour was so good I wanted R to do it too, so we did. I will have to do again as in the future it will feature an auto demonstration of the organ in action. I mean, it will be a computer controlled demo.
The guide was the same bloke as last time and he certainly knows his
stuff on Melbourne's history. I did catch him out on 'electric trams now
run on the streets where the cable trams ran'. No, not in Lonsdale Street
that had a cable tram, later a minimal number of buses. Now it
has become a full on bus street. I didn't mention it. It is a small point and town hall tourists aren't that bothered by minor details.
I haven't included the photo of R sitting in the Lord Mayor's chair in Council Chambers, but he did.
