Waiting for Aimee outside EB Games on Sunday I reacquainted myself with Percy Buttons 1892-1954.. a colourful character (see link) arriving in Perth from England in 1910, immortalized in bronze here on Hay St. right in the centre of the CBD by Joan Walsh-Smith & Charles Smith. A much loved street entertainer in the early 1900's on a good day he could earn up to four pounds, which got me to wondering what sort of average earnings a street busker would hope to earn nowadays!
Up towards Barrack St. it looked kind of quiet in the city and then, turning the other way.. oh yeh, there they all are, heading through Ye Olde London Court very popular with les touristes! So long Percy Buttons, I would have definitely put a coin in your top hat.. and taken a picture with my box brownie :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.....p.s. doesn't Percy create a happy shadow!
