Parking Meter

One of the dying breed of parking meters still left in Brisbane. These are being replaced slowly by the printed ticket variety. This one is in the dead-end side-street next to the pavilion.

Taken during the Brisbanites Flickr Anniversary / Pre-Christmas Drinks gathering at The Pavilion, West End, Brisbane.

    Gads a meter that does not take credit cards, a blast from the past! I remember when they removed the 5 cent meters from Melbourne they sent them to Hobart. I suppose that is progress.

    I was quite surprised to see them there Brian, and more surprised to see them still in use. I wonder how one would go about getting one when they're retired....

    It's the sort of thing you have a love/hate relationship with. On the one hand there's those nifty times you get a park with the meter still running, but then there's the far more frequent time of getting a parking ticket 'cause you didn't make it back in time to feed the meter.
