Made in the late 19thC at the Launceston Railway Yards, which in fact still survives as an exhibition feature at the Queen Victoria Art Museum. Another piece of local history that Ray Norman has retained and passed on, you won’t find anything in the park (or on the seat) that explains this fact though.

UPDATE: Thursday October 9 2008 – Ray Norman just sent this link to (NOW) the longest park bench in the world . . . created by The Droog Creative Agency in Holland
