Daily Photo – Thursday 10th September 2015 – Looking Old?

At the top of the stairs of South Brisbane train station is this decorative light. Or is it a lamp?

Looking Old?

It’s in a style that I guess is meant to give the impression of being old or traditional.

I’m not sure it ever is actually used as a light source. Just a random feature at the top of the stairwell.

Thanks Queensland Rail for feeding my joy of random things to see and enjoy on a daily commute.

Daily Photo – Tuesday 8th September 2015 – Brunswick Street Mural

This beaten copper mural by an unknown artist apparently depicts the history of Brunswick Street from 1890 to 1970.

With New Farm on the left and Fortitude Valley on the right.

Brunswick Street Mural

The plate says it was commissioned by the National Australia Bank in 1972, and it was displayed at the bank until the 1990’s.

Queensland Rail purchased it in 2004, which is why I guess it is now displayed on one of the platforms at Fortitude Valley railway station.

Shame it’s not possible to get a little closer to it, to see the details.
