One Riverine Herald reader has shared her creative vision for how Echuca's Northern Hwy entrance could be simply improved.TRENT HORNEMAN February 7, 2013 4:43am
Moama's Grace Taylor used an image from the Riv's front page story on Monday about Echuca's entrances to illustrate how she thought the 'gallows' could be improved.
Moama resident Grace Taylor has given her vision for Echuca’s town entrances.
After Committee for Echuca-Moama criticised the standard of entrances in Monday’s Riverine Herald, Mrs Taylor said there was a solution for the dilemma of what to do with the infamous ‘Gallows’ on the Northern Hwy.
Mrs Taylor’s thought was simple.
‘‘Every wharf needs a boat,’’ she said.
Mrs Taylor would like to add a silhouette of a paddlesteamer to adorn the wooden structures.
‘‘To Echuca-Moama residents it has a meaning, but it doesn’t have that for visitors to the region. An image of the paddlesteamer would let visitors know what it all means,’’ she said.
‘‘Let’s face it, the paddlesteamers are what Echuca is famous for and it is what should be on the entrance.’’
Mrs Taylor went to the effort of showing the Riverine Herald her vision, using a cut-out of the PS Pevensey stuck on Monday’s front page.
‘‘This has been on my mind for months and after I saw it in Monday’s paper, I thought it was time to suggest it,’’ she said.
‘‘The large silhouette above the ‘waves’ across the larger wharf pylons would be an unmistakable message.’’
