Railway Impressions (Sean McCarthy)

Railway Impressions (Sean McCarthy)

One more of Sean McCarthy’s painted telecommunications boxes. This one is in St Georges Road, Avondale, right beside a level railway crossing — as you might already have guessed. We hope that by the end of the year the depiction of a diesel engine will be just a quaint (if noisy) memory, replaced by whisper quiet electric trains. Another hope goes for the circuit boards that are alluded to in the picture: may there never ever be signal failures again! (See Herald stories here and here.)

The City Daily Photo community has a theme “St George’s Day” with great latitude on its interpretation: “You are welcome to post on your ideas on this day, your ideas on National Days and their value, even your favourite footie team.” This contribution has probably one of the more tenuous connections to St George or his day… For more contributions go to the theme day site.
