Whether it be through luck or good judgment some towns have saved some beautiful examples of iron lacework. These examples are from two very different towns. Firstly the raw mining town of Broken Hill in NSW with its juxtaposition of mining and art. And the more genteel city of Maryborough in Qld. A town steeped in colonial history Maryborough has some exquisite examples of Queenslander style homes and is itself the home of Pamela Travers the author of Mary Poppins.
