The mural at the Elizabeth Street concourse of Melbourne Central station is quite a striking art work that wends its way mainly along the Northern wall of the underground station. It was completed in 1991-1992 by Lesley Dickman in conjunction with other artists, and comprises 172 panels each 2.65 by 1.2 metres. The images are a melange of figures, objects and motifs that suggest industry and various occupations. A recurring motif is that of wheels, cogs and round elements. Very apt for this hub of public transport in the midst of the City.
One of the advantages of catching the very early train in to work is that station is almost deserted and one can take pictures of the mural without interference form passers by.
