Public furniture

p2140720.jpgp2140721.jpg

one of perths greatest assets, which seem to be slowly dissapearing is the great concrete public furniture. The bus stops, seats, bins, and old water troughs were/are outstanding pieces of modern functionalist design. Its a great tragedy that they seem to be dissapearing. These pieces are real design!  ill start small, but ill post more when i get them.. bus stops are my favourite.

  1. OK THAT’s arcana.
    Lots of old concrete bus stops still in Kalamunda, Forrestfield, Maida Vale etc.

  2. There is a very pleasing curved metal bus stop still prevalent in the hills that I will post myself sometime.
    The Worst of Perth. I see you’re getting some stats Tom.
