heheheh – as screwy as ever Morlan 😀
AND you’ve managed to satisfy all the whingers by providing that all important viewing point – they can all climb up the service ladders!
The concrete would’ve matched the archie lampposts too were they still in place 🙁

As an aside that’s one of the very few viewpoints on the street that really captures the beauty of Johnston’s portico – I really like it, a lot of people don’t I know, but much of the ‘weight’ that’s often criticised is lost from this position, a view no doubt Johnston considered when draughting. It is imposing rather than heavy when observed from here.
O’Connell St was afterall a very different place in 1814…
