Supreme Court of WA..



It was such a pretty day in the city yesterday. On the way back from Elizabeth Quay we took a shortcut back to St Georges Terrace through the Supreme Court Gardens. I love that they have kept the original gates although there are open walk-ins on either side and the gates remain closed :) The view below of the Supreme Court of WA built in the Federation Academic Classical style and opened for business in 1903.. 55,888pounds 11shillings and 3pence well spent I say!


A walk around the corner to get a view of ..


... the front. I did not know that the court is open and the public can sit in and observe most cases. I think I may have to check the court listings and do just that.. better remember to switch off my mobile phone and check with the judge about taking pics 😉 Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  8. Beautiful gardens and a stately building. The U.S. Supreme Court is only surrounded by concrete and buildings.

  18. Such an impressive looking building. Years ago, I sat in on a Supreme Court case that was originally tried by a friend. It was quite an experience that I will never forget. It's tricky here to see a case. You have to stand in a long line and wait to see if you make it in and then you have to put all your belongings in a locker except a note pad and pen before you enter the court room.
