The Grand Parade Cannon

The Grand Parade Cannon

This unusual lump of metal sticking out of the pavement on the Grand Parade could be the oldest street furniture in the city. I had forgotten I had posted this photo way back in 2007 but I prefer this version of the photo as it has more detail. What do you think? Which photo is […]
