Artist's Description

Canon 50D 0.6 sec@f10 -2/3 comp sigma 17-70 @ 25mm
Melbourne’s first railway station, Flinders Street was built in 1854. Two railway workers won the design tender. This might explain why the station contained such fabulous facilities for railway workers, now, sadly, in disrepair. In its heyday the building buzzed with a concert hall, a library, a crèche, meeting rooms, even a ballroom. Stretching along the Yarra for a block, the station is a city landmark. On any weekday, well over 100, 000 people weave through the station’s underpasses, escalators, stairs and platforms.

Flinders Street Station is a cultural icon to Melbourne, frequently used in imagery representing the city. The Melburnian idiom “I’ll meet you under the clocks” refers to the row of clocks above the main entrance, which indicate the departure time of the next train on each line; another being “I’ll meet you on the steps”, referring to the wide staircase leading into the main entrance. Both are a popular meeting places as it is at the intersection of two of the city’s busiest thoroughfares. The station is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.
