West Hobart 's a bit steep!

Here is a terrific set of photos of houses on steep slopes in Hobart, a lot of which are in West Hobart.

I'm not sure of the exact translation of the text, but it is something like:  the 'art' in the photos arises from  the  detail of the Victorian architecture, the symmetrical pairing of the houses, and the correlations between the roof lines etc and the slopes of the streets.....  My favourite is the pair where the cars are colour matched to the houses!  Thanks to the photographer G√ľnther Bayerl.
