Russell Square on James St., named after Lord John Russell The Secretary of State and Prime Minister from 1846 - 1852 became known as 'Parco del Sospire', The Park of Sighs (who said romance was gone?) as it was a popular meeting place for the Italian community. It has hosted many festivals and fairs including last years City of Perth's Pride Fairday. There are, according to the blurb on Russell Square, thirty original sculptures designed by local artists in the park (which I will check out properly the next time I'm there), but this time as I was walking to my car I had eyes only for this magnificent old Morten Bay Fig tree, through which you can see the bandstand. You can get an idea of how big the trunk of this tree is by how small the man sitting underneath looks. To me this has got to be the best 'natural' sculpture in the park.....!!
