Tower & Culture

More history. The building once at the corner of Outram Ord Street and Thomas Street in West Perth in the actual process of falling. It was either Al Queada or Osborne Park All Demos. I think it was the Disability Services building. Can’t remember what went up in its place. Late 1990s. And a shot of a dude with a Culture Club shirt, I took on the streets of Northbridge 1983.

    For nothing changes
    Urban primitives remain
    More club than culture

      The synchronicity between my post and the L101’s above is most disturbing. Many thanks to all those who voted to “let the cunt be.”

    Plenty of “culture” in the fridge left behind by an outgoing tenant in a neighbouring unit.
    The mob sent in to clean the place almost revolted, though it was the state of the flat that was actually revolting.
    It reminded me a lot of a flat mate in the late ’70s (though one would never have referred to her as ‘flat’) who had an incredible, though involuntary, capacity for making a pig pen out of wherever she stayed.
    Cultured? Certainly – especially in the bathroom and inside the fridge.
    Mould everywhere.


  4. Outram St and Thomas St don’t meet.

    Looking at the first pic., I reckon that the yanks did a much tidier job with the Twin Towers and that third building.

    Not the process of falling, the actual process of falling, actually.

    Why is it that everybody in a photo from the early 80’s looks like one of the Mickelberg brothers? No wonder they got done for the Mint swindle.


  8. BRIK says:

    After a quick look on Google Street View, it looks like the Disability Services building is now a car park…

    I found the Balinese bomb site of 2002 superior to our own efforts.

    The Ord St Is now ConocoPhillips head office – big glassy, shiny n souless.
