Rolf Orthodox

James N found, down on the river in Ashfield, a building which one day could give Perth a good ruin a la Hudson River Valley. Some kind of monastery apparently. And new. More interestingly, a Bicentennial Rolf relic nearby. Don’t the words “This stone laid by Rolf Harris” give a thrill? A thrill of fear. As if he may have laid a Darch nearby too. Someone needs to follow this heritage trail.

    Building in the name of good-looking ruins is sooo 1938.

    Would Speer have used corrugated iron?

    The scaffolding gives it truly European authenticity.

    I’m not getting a worst vibe yet. Maybe when it’s completed? Could be I’ve lived in Freo too long.

    Love this place! It is in basso – just down the road from where we used to live. The guy has been building it since before we moved there in 1987. The old federation house on the front of the block looking over the river is pretty cool too.

    I don’t know if you take requests but I want to see a picture of someone who has a tatt of that Bicentennial logo.

    Is that a church and where is Hudson Valley? im bad with suburbs.

    I’d be keen to hear some Gregorian monks do a chanted version of “Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport”…the Essence of Bassendean, distilled to its purest form.
