As I meandered through the parklands, enjoying the weather and not in any hurry to be home, I came across this->
Over to the side a bit....
Did you notice the fence behind the pile of bark chips?
This has been set inside the locked gate of a children's playground.
The outside of the fence has a notice banning smoking and I would think that includes campfires too.
From here I moved back onto the streets and saw these things....
There is evidence of smoke damage on other parts of the building.
peeling paint on the brick wall adjacent to the above building.
There are many of these in Adelaide, close to the city and in far flung suburbs too.
When properly cared for they are beautiful homes.
Many of them are also used as offices.
