History under the stairs...



On the wall of the wonderful old Astor Theatre built in 1914/15 in Mount Lawley.. a mural in a similar theme to the work you enjoyed here last year by super talented Perth artist Melski, aka Mel McVee depicting the era of the trams running down Beaufort Street. I cropped the black and white shot below right in to give you an idea of the space now as compared to back then. How cool are the gelato colours and retro advertising on the old theatre! Hope your week is off to a good start, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  2. I like that. It adds visual interest to what would otherwise be a bland wall.

  3. Street art is the best!! I like where the artist placed the mural. It adds to the overall scene. I love murals but unfortunately we only have a few in town. I'll have to inquire.

  13. I think the last photo shows what the artist intended with the view almost through a window. Very clever.

  18. A very clever use of a space that would otherwise be dull. The artist has brought life, conversation and a story to what would otherwise just be ... well ... bricks. I am impressed by the artists imagination.

  25. That is really nice. I like how the pattern of the open steps on the stairs, kind of matches the pattern of the train tracks.
    Nice pics Grace!
