On every corner in the Central Business District of Melbourne there seems to be some form of public art, mostly a sculpture.
The most famous and best loved sculpture is The Public Purse which lies outside the old GPO in Bourke Street. There are always tourists getting photographed sitting on top of it, though there weren't any when I took this photo.
Equally cherished is The Three Businessmen who lurk on the corner of Swanston and Bourke Streets. Someone had inserted a cigarette butt into the mouth of the leading businessman before I snapped this shot.
Down the road from where I work, is this sculpture outside the Telstra building. The couple are looking in the window at another sculpture representing, I presume, the telephone network.
This quaint sculpture has been on the corner of Collins and Elizabeth Streets for years. I've forgotten what it's called, but I've always liked it.
There are many more works of street art in Melbourne. I'll be posting more on this later when I get around to organising the photos.
