Trove made me speechless.

I was fiddling around on Trove this arvo and found this...

The Sunday Mail (Brisbane), Sunday 28 April 1929, page 3.

 Don't worry, I know it's hard to read. Here's the transcription -

"Fifty country police stations in Victoria are being equipped with motor cycles, which will replace horses. The Chief Commissioner remarked, that horses were too slow in most cases, and the building of good roads had changed the whole idea of things.

Another link with the picturesque past is to be severed."

Something about it just caught my attention. I think it was the statement at the end, but I'm having trouble coming up with the words to explain why.
