Imperial Place II


Who was J. Frank Parnell?

Why was this dirty, dead-end alleyway chosen as his memorial site?

A story waiting to be told...

Hey Sparrow,

First time I've looked at your site. Pretty cool. I live in Adelaide,
so I've seen some of these places, but some of the photographs
are so interesting, particularly ones with street art and dead ends.

Caught this photo, just thought I'd tell you that this must be some
kind of strange joke, a pretty old one too.

J. Frank Parnell was a character in a really bad 1984 movie starring
Emilio Estevez. Parnell was a lobotomized scientist who dies in the
film. The story is here if you want to take a look:
