In researching the previous blog post
about post offices...
Hmmm : why "post"?
We recalled it was a Bus Stop. Tim suggested it might be sited there as a continuation from the days when the Melbourne-Bendigo Cobb & Co mail coach would stop at each post/office.
Anyway, in researching our previous blog post about post offices, we found online at vimeo a very interesting 90 minute interview with the artist Robert MacPherson.
l - r : Michele Helmrich, Robert MacPherson, Rex ButlerIn it, MacPherson talks at length and in great detail about his art. And, in a note towards the end, explains why one year he sent 3000 items through the Hepburn Springs Post Office and received in return a thank you letter from postmistress Debbie.
