The things you see

This cute little Austin was motoring through the roundabout where Gould St meets Eloura St in Braddon when smoke from the engine suddenly surrounded the driver. Without hesitation, he pulled smoothly on to the curb to tinker under the hood. It looked like a lawnmower engine to my untrained eye.

The Austin certainly looks like a toy car and is probably the right width to motor unimpeded along many footpaths. The driver wore an appropriate woolen jumper and Donegal cap, partly obscured by my hasty shots. He was fittingly accompanied by a placid Border Collie.
