    Indeed. Hehe. :D

    The old city hall was a smaller (normal-sized) nondescript building with a bronze bull sculpture in front of the entrance gate. This one did away with the sculpture but the entire roof is in the shape of a bull's horns.

    The scale however... :crazyeye:

    The Australian Capital Territory has no local governent, with local government functions (land rates, municipal services, etc) done by a department of the Territory government.

    This is the ACT Legislative Assembly:

    The Territory and Municipal Services building is a completely anonymous office building on the edge of Canberra which I can only find on Google streetview.

    Old one, still in use for oficial acts and mayor's bureau




    Current one, holds all citizen services




    The neiborhood in which I live, it was an independent municipality until 1925, it was having its own city hall



    It was demolished in 1957, due to a construction of a tunnels that would improve the entrance to the city.

    i can see the flag from my place

    Spoiler :


    but several years ago the state governmant forced several local councils to amalgamate because they were seen as to small, so we have 3 local town halls now, and no reduction in rates to reflect any savings

    Spoiler :





    any help in why I'm only getting huge pictures from little snaps in wikki, would be appreciated...
    ( apart from saying, but your an idiot, that I know already)

    The Town Hall of Aarhus, Denmark, by renowned architect and designer Arne Jacobsen.
    For 74 years the citizens of Aarhus have been wondering, when the scaffolding is going to be removed.
