Facades and flagpoles

Continuing on from yesterday’s architecture trip I set myself the theme of facades in the Armidale CBD. To add to the challenge, each facade had to incorporate a flagpole. I was disappointed at how few flagpoles were found flying a flag from the facade (perhaps I should be the founder member of Alliteration Anonymous!)
