For more than one hundred years the Horseshoe Bridge above was the connection between Northbridge and the CBD. You might remember me mentioning the Perth City Link project to sink the Fremantle railway line and the Wellington Street bus station leaving the area above open for construction of Yagan Square named in recognition of one of the Noongar people’s great leader-warriors Yagan, also acknowledging the historical and cultural significance of the site. Above looking out to Wellington Street and the CBD and below looking over to Roe Street in Northbridge.
Excellent architectural view here showing Yagan Square tucked nicely into the arms of the Horseshoe Bridge. Below as you enter the square from Wellington Street the 9mt tall sculpture Wirin.
'Wirin' the Noongar word for spirit represents the eternal sacred force of creative power that connects all life of boodja (mother earth)'. Of all the projects going on around Perth at the moment, this bridging of the divide makes the most sense :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
