  Hitching posts, lower end of Wallace Street
by tiabunna

In many parts of Wallace Street, Braidwood's main street, you will find these strange steel posts alongside the kerb. They are a relic of bygone days and are known as hitching posts. Sometimes you also will see them in western movies, because they were used to tie the bridle of your horse when you went to town. Braidwood is one of the few places where they survive, though they are rarely used now.

Address: Wallace Street, Braidwood, NSW, Australia
