On The Stump

Another “Essence of Perth” shot. This time from Cobbler. The brick, the tiles, the Solahart, the Sulo, the palm stump. Just missing “a bladder of goon and thou”. I almost wish I was overseas so I could be nostalgic. Bayswater. Well of course it is. I’m thinking Cotton Palm rather than Cocos, but I think there’s an ole Cocos in the BG.

    I hear ya, TLA, but it’s not quite doing it for me. Maybe if the lawn was a bit more registered ?

    Aw! C’mon TLA, this is pure suburban Perth.
    1960s and ’70s with a bit of modern reconstituted limestone, a lovely green plastic recycling bin and a fine black one to put the rubbish in.
    What more could you want?
    Even the dismantled brieze block breezeway adds a certain panache to it.

    Gorgeous worstness.

    The only thing missing is a Hills Hoist.

    This is what palms will look like after the nuclear conflagration.

    “Essence of Perth” indeed. This is a worst that just keeps giving. I like the juxtaposition of fences, have a look at the back fence (barricade?), it has three styles starting with color bond then limestone and topped off with a brush divider but only part of it. Whats behind the solid part of the fence and what the fuck are those two black semi circles? Drainage culverts?
    Could be why ‘old mate’ has a half arsed brick wall, to keep out the torrents of water flowing from next door or maybe they are escape tunnels in case the Stazi pay a visit from the Old Country.
    And why is there half a breeze block fence in the middle of the lawn and did they stop when they realised there was a huge piece of steel in the way? And what is that fucking thing anyway? A DIY missile silo?

    Actually the stump is the only thing that makes sense. Classic Worst

    At first glance i thought there was an oversized cricket bat leaning against the house.

    Please kill me. I am trapped in this joke of a city.

    The low conical shape of the old galvanized well (or is it bore pump?) cover at the end of the wall. Iconic Perth.
