    I travelled to Brisbane last week in the Arnage, and tired and weary turned in to Burnett Lane to deliver my motor to the ever affable porters at Lennons.

    It has ceased to exist !!

    The hotel has been taken over by "foreign nationals" .

    And it's name will be changed to next or somesuch.

    I was much discomfited and then tried to find the "Peoples' Palace to see it was a backpackers.

    What is happening?

    Has the world gone mad?

    I eventually found refuge in a very nice club run by a lady called Jay-Mee who allowed me sleep on a chaise longue, and parked my Arnage.

    Brisbane CBD looked cactus, retail gone, restaurants gone, looked on it's latter legs.

    I doubt if Brisbane inner city property will keep it's value over the next 12 months.

    I left the next day to visit a cousin who had flown in to the Gold Coast from East of Finland.

    Oh no , GG :1zhelp:
    I wonder if they still let in under fed uni students on Friday afternoon to partake in free bar snacks and Guinness off the tap in those little shatterproof glass mugs ? Then stumble up the road to fall into the next train on the Shorncliffe line.

    The old Lennons has been torn down and replaced with stuff that in turn is being torn down and replaced. There is now a Lennons in the Queen St mall (above); its full name is The Chifley at Lennons. Bigger? Perhaps. More central? I guess so. But better? Nup!

    For any student of Brisbane history this is a good starting point.
