Campbell awnings

I was briefly in Campbell last week, and these coloured awnings at the local shops caught my eye.

Campbell is a suburb close to the city centre, tucked in behind the Defence-dominated Russell. It sits at the base of Mt Ainslie, and has a lot of military connections, being home to the Australian War Memorial, the Royal Military College, Duntroon, and the Australian Defence Force Academy. Duntroon was the name of a property in this area (named after the ancestral home - Duntrune Castle - in Scotland) owned by Robert Campbell, for whom the suburb is named. The street name theme in Campbell is 'Military personnel'.

Personally, we just went there for the cold Vietnamese prawn rolls at the bakery ...
