When I was a postgrad I used to take the train from Ballarat to Melbourne and, in those days, it used to pass by the dilapidated substation. The neo-classical brick building always reminded me of the comic hero Batman's 'Batcave'. The Substation has been restored and houses the library, a community-based arts centre and a terrific ballroom. Thank you to all who attended my talk today at a such beautiful location, and to Librarian Sarah Lavelle, who took the photos.
