Tanks Re-Invented ......




I couldn't help but smile at these cylindrical advertising pillars
recently installed in the streets of Adelaide.
Created from dis-used rain-water tanks
they are plastered with promotional posters
for our city's current Fringe Festival



Old tanks re-invented!
definitely not as classy as the  revolving Morris Columns of Paris
but need-less-to-say they do the job.

That's such a terrific idea though - very Australian!

I pass many of these as I travel to and from work on the bus and I've thought of photographing them, but now I don't have to. Thanks.
They are a great sight.
Maybe Adelaide Council will think to continue this type of advertising for other things once the Fringe is over.

Joe said...

A great idea methinks. Goodness there is a lot to advertise in Adelaide.

Valerie said...

They are indeed somewhat reminiscent (but not as classy) as those I remember seeing in France!

Interesting and plenty of colors!Anyway sometimes when I see lots of advertisements like that...I have the impression it's enough, a little bit of pollution to my eyes! Just thinking...
:)
Your pictures are great!

You can read for hours when posters are displayed like that. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Creative recycling and great shots for OWT ^_^

Good idea.

Stephanie said...

They are very colorful and such a great idea!

I never heard the phrase "Morris column" until reading a photo blog a day or two ago, and here it is again. So long as there is a need to show posters, this kind of thing is probably a better idea than having them stuck to every wall around.

That is a good idea for that kind of advertising. It is such a buzz in Adelaide at the time of the fringe festival. Back a few years ago our daughter, Sonya, was the site manager for the Adelaide Fringe Festival. she said it was one of the best jobs she didd.

Clever idea.

I love your photos of Adelaide and really enjoyed my recent visit. I was rather sad not to have time to take any photos myself. I must return one day.
