FLINDERS STREET STATION


On 11 January 1922 an article appeared in the Argus under the banner "World's Busiest Station".  It reported that it was generally understood among railway men that Flinders Street Station was the busiest in the world in respect to the number of trains handled, and one of the first three in the world as regards the number of passengers arriving and departing on an ordinary working day.  It still seems pretty busy to me.  Cheers J.

PELICAN PAINTING


A short while ago we were contacted by an artist called "Jean" with a request to use one of our Pelican photographs as the subject of a painting.  Her work is complete and she was kind enough to allow us to show it to you on our blog.  Above is the finished product. Very fine work and amazingly close to the original photograph.

Thanks for sharing your work with us Jean.  Cheers from J&J.
