Even though it has been in decline for the last 20 years, with a few of the original sites intact, Luna Park is of national significance. The face, flanking towers, and the Scenic Railway have all been classified by the National Trust. As a whole it is regarded as important for its early date, rarity, continuity of use and for its symbolic association with St.Kilda and Melbourne.

You have a strong image with this face as gate to Luna Park. Looks like it could have been shot decades ago. It is timeless. Glad to know the Park is still viable.ReplyDelete

I enjoyed seeing this. Nice to read the background to a place I've seen in films.
Fantastic shot and post!ReplyDelete
