Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I lived in Canberra as a child, and it was not at all like this. Quite primitive even for a planned capitol city. The only heat in our house was provided by wood stoves, one at each end, and an electric fire in the bathroom. Despite rumors to the contrary, it gets cold in winter!

If there were time travel, I would select 1960 and Australia.
