This copper artwork shows the historical development of transport along Brunswick Street, from New Farm in the 1890s to Fortitude Valley in the 1970s. But the move from horses to wagons to trams and cars is hard to see now, as it’s slowly disappearing under years of grit and grime.
Countless commuters see it every day at the Fortitude Valley train station, yet finding out the name of the artist behind the artwork has proved elusive for Brisbane’s libraries, art galleries, Facebook groups, and even the original commissioner or current owner of the piece.
