Sadly we leave Percy and Carol and head back to Perth.
On the roundabout near the centre of Bunbury we see a modern sculpture. I pointed out to Dad that one of the people was Percy. We circled again and Dad was amazed. He stopped and photographed.
They appear to represent Surfers, fishermen, whalers and strangely, a "house mover".
Percy made his money as house mover, literally. He use to jack up houses, split them up into manageable sizes, back his lorries under them and transport them hundreds of miles. Particularly when towns grew up quickly and often died quickly it was more cost effective to "move" a house rather than build another.
