A Memorial to Soldiers
An unusual, stark white building stands near the entrance of Callan Park, which was once the site of a psychiatric hospital. Certain sections, the buildings with peaceful views of the bay, once housed traumatised soldiers from both World War 1 and World War 2. I remember walking past and seeing the men sitting looking out at the water when we first moved to the area. It was a sad sight, but hopefully, they were being well looked after.
This memorial was built for them.
Thanks everyone for your art last week. We actually had 50 this time! I had a busy week, so I apologise for being so late getting back to you. But I believe I did manage to visit everyone eventually. It is surprising..and sometimes annoying…how non art/blog parts of your life get in the way sometimes:) I must say that a lot of those times are good times too though and just make it fuller. And it means only one post this week!
So, once again, welcome Mandarin Orange Monday 65:)
