I was ambling around the Abbottsford/ Collingwood area, and found it has the most interesting history. There are quite a few informative boards, including the map below, that shows Victoria Park is now the ground for Collingwoood Football Club, fans called Magpies, or pies, their colours being black and white. I took a photo of the sculpture sitting up on a mound, framed by two magnificent Eucalyptus trees....I read that this area was covered in them originally. The scoreboard is a reminder of the old scoreboard in that position, it apparently was quite iconic, and had spring-loaded winding mechanisms with bike sprockets and wooden handles to move the numbers and signs, hence they are represented in the new sculpture called The Final Siren.
The Collingwood football ground seems to be a nice place to exercise dogs on a perfect Melbourne day!
