Images of Canberra – Civic public art walking tour Episode 6, Thespis

By johnboy 23 April 2006 2

On Saturday 08-APR-06 we did the Civic Public Art Walking Tour and lived to tell the tale.

And so, I present to you item # 6, Thespis by Robert Cook. It is in Civic Square.

Not Thespis

Well, actually it isn’t there. It’s somewhere in storage while they do the Civic Link and will be inside the Link foyer when it’s complete. Or so they say. The funny thing is it remains on the guide for the tour despite it’s entry including an apology for the damn thing not being there. More of these to come.

By way of consolation please enjoy this picture of the blasted waste where once there was a food court.

The ghost of the Glebe Park Food Court

It was kind of behind the casino, next to Glebe Park. You know that carpark behind the convention centre, across from the Reaid CIT campus? That’s where it used to be.

I have no idea when or why it was knocked down. I do have vague memories as a yound child being taken there for dinner and the excitement of choosing between all those different kinds of foods (which are now available in most mall food courts).

Where was the food court? Why is it no longer there?
