I've missed trolley spotting. We bought a car, and my usual walks past abandoned trolleys have gone by the wayside. With summer here, I plan to get walking again.

My friend Nat just mailed me a wonderful photo to give me the kick-up-the backside that I needed. Pulled from a Queensland creek replete with rust and barnacles!

They are multipling. They have grown to four. They have hired a fifth to serve as a sentinel. I have nothing better to do. Happy Australia Day!

This pair of trolleys are still living it up. I took their original photos over a month ago, but I've been watching them for far longer. It looks like they've added a bedframe to their love nest.

I love guest spots, and this one comes from Jacqui of Life in the Dome. Jacqui's story for this wayward cart: "On way home from the pub, stopped for the munchies, passed out."

Is it me or is there only one house in this entire neighborhood? I'm pretty sure I know who's guilty this time.

Tiny little thumbnail spotted at the online Sydney Morning Herald linking to an article about rubbish. (note: still seeking a larger version and proper photo credits.)

found on google maps

While seeking out the exact location of some of my carts on Google Street View. I've come across an unexpected joy. It seems one of my carts was present on the day the Googlemobile drove by and it kindly stayed put until I got my photo in.

You can use Google Map's to search around this cart's neighborhood. Hurrah for cart harmony!



where the carts live

Someone recently asked me where I find so many carts. Many of them are surprisingly close to home, but some I've found in faraway places like Parramatta and Melbourne. I've started tagging the locations with Picasa to put a map together. A few of the early carts are missing, but I'll keep updating the map as new ones are added.

trolleys in the news - bronte

2008-12-29T19:20:04.711-08:00

So I'm sitting on the couch flipping through a free local magazine called The Beast. It's one of those "hop topic, in-the-know, what's happening in your community" type of things that gets shoved in every mailbox within an 8km radius. It's free and often has fascinating history lessons about Bondi and the surrounding area. So I'm flipping through and the trolleys caught my eye. There is an article by Duncan Horscroft entitled Last Stop for Shopping Trolleys

(image)
Duncan points out the shopping trolley situation in the nearby Bronte bus terminus that is "growing every week." He proposes quirky solutions and makes me smile in the knowledge that I'm not alone in noticing the growing number of abandoned carts in Sydney. You can get your trolley fix at The Beast's January online edition on page 58.
