Rush to the rescue

Two Australian celebrities, Geoffrey Rush and Barry Humphries, have joined a campaign to save the Camberwell railway station from redevelopment.

I'm sympathetic to this cause. It's not just that the station itself is historic and charming, but that the whole precinct is a well preserved example of the best of old Melbourne: beautiful homes, gardens and parks.

Rush spoke of his fear that such developments would mean the death of "that hidden, quiet, beautiful city aesthetic."
