I have talked a deal of the Hyde Park Obelisk, I now propose to revisit it and the other seventeen sewer vents in order to draw them, to get a feel for the various sites and gauge what would be best for a proposed Tour of The Great Big Fart Towers of Sydney, The City of Celebrated Stinks.
Stay tuned!
