I is a romantic

I recall in a book I read that some chaps climbed to a high hill and from there they could see five counties.

Dunno how that equates to Australia, but I can see five town halls and so five municipalities of the old order. Eyes left and there is Hawthorn Town Hall, there is Malvern Town Hall, and next to it is Prahran Town Hall and a bit further right is Caulfield Town Hall. What I can't see is Kew Town Hall (does Kew have a town hall?) A hill blocks our view of St Kilda Town hall, fucking high rise office building blocks our view of South Melbourne Town Hall and Port Melbourne Town Hall.

But still, views of a few town halls in one swing of the eyes is good.
