    The top photo looks like ‘Commonwealth Square’ to me, which is across the street from the Art Gallery, not the Art Gallery The square is by Hamilton place, the light red building on the right, on the west side. A hundred thousand was spent by the City on improving the lighting there, to reduce the possibility of vandalism on the donated statues that were later placed there. The statues were very durable and I’m not sure it was money well spent.

    There is also a hilarious song, ‘Show Us the Door Trevor’, about the Art Gallery and other buildings designed by Garwood-Jones. The song was part of the cabaret ‘Steel Crazy’, that was written by some former ‘Spectator’ writers. I got to see the cabaret performed by Theatre Aquarius.
