Vanished Worst

Have added a new category, “Vanished Worst” to the sidebar, to note all worsts that have been lost since posting. A surprising number have gone already, and there are about 10 that are under threat in some way. (The Norwood is not gone yet, but is finished as a pub.) You will be sad to know that Safeway Autos sign is gone. It would have been forgotten forever without TWOP. The blog does have a value besides slagging off the Convention Centre. Unfortunately, the rotting sculpture in front of the station that Lisa “She-Ra” Scaffidi (thanks Martin) had promised to remove is still there. I think it will still be there in 20 years.

    It’ll be a graveyard of historical abominations. future generations can gasp in horror at Perth’s aesthetic indiscretions. love your work LA. p.s. also love the “she-ra” tag Martin.

    Just saw an an ad for Today Tonight which had a story on the impending closure of the World’s Biggest Bingo Centre on Guildford Rd Bayswater.

    Perhaps you could grab a shot of it ?

  3. Yes, I have meant to do that before. I always thought it must be the same architect as the convention centre.
