This is the view of yesterday's Arch looking up from St. Georges Terrace. It has a really interesting story (BarracksArch). When Parliament House was built on the rise, the barracks were knocked down so that Parliament would have a view of St. Georges Terrace, but because of the public outcry (thank goodness for public outcry!) the Arch remained. The ironic thing is, that it still blocks their view of the terrace. The ghostly silhouette in front is called 'The Unidentified Photographer', he is a life-sized bronze created in 1996, he is holding a Box Brownie camera.
