A Junction in Time Sculpture

A Junction in Time Sculpture, Midland, Western Australia

Public Art: A Junction in Time Sculpture

Sculptor/Artist: © Nicholas Compton

Date: 1995

Description: A bronze and copper sculpture of a steam engine embedded in a brick wall.

Location: Outside DOLA (Department of Land Administration) building on The Avenue, Midland, Western Australia.

Commissioned and Sponsored by: The Shire of Swan, Midland Brick, the Department of Land Administration, and the Midland Centennial Committee.

History: Unfortunately the only information I can find on this sculpture was what was written on the plaque. Somewhere either in,on or underneath the sculpture is a time capsule. No date on when, where and if it will ever be opened, but stay tuned, you never know what I may uncover in my quest for more information. Funny, when I was a kid our school buried a time capsule (in the 1970's), to be opened in the year 2000, I think I am the only living being on earth who remembers.
