Ronggly sent this shot of the Indian Ocean Hotel in Scarborough so that historians will know the essence of Perth in the early years of the century. And in the several decades of the last. It’s just so Perth. A salmon brick hotel from the worst period of WA architecture, with palm trees, one burnt, one half burnt. But I like it. These are shots that would make me homesick if I were overseas. It just says Perth to me. Much better on the eye than Ray O’Connor’s Observation City.I just remembered photoshop has a vibrance filter. I applied it to the palms. What a difference. I’ve just checked their website which says that The Rolling Stones and Led Zepplin stayed there (1971 & 1973). On the down side, John Bono Butler has regularly played there too.
