Here it is in 1962 in all it's modernist glory and here it is in a terrible state of disrepair before it was demolished
Perry Lakes Stadium
Sadly it is now a residential site so to me the little old tablecloth is definetely treasure!
Note:the pics of Perry lakes Stadium are from a great Perth architecture blog http://perthsbest.wordpress.com/
