Description :
Stobie poles are the steel and concrete telegraphy and electricity poles invented in South Australia by James Stobie. They are often criticised as being ugly and some artists have taken to decorating them to make them easier on the eye.
This Stobie pole stands on the southern side of Port Road, Hindmarsh, and has been painted by an amateur woman artist - note the can of paint beside the pole.
