NE Silo Art Trail – St James

St James has a population of fewer than 100 residents and is small even by Australian small-town standards. The Artwork here depicts a mural of Sir George Coles, the founder of Coles supermarkets (Now one of the largest in Australia) who was a local to the St James township. The silo bunkers at St James were built in 1943, with bushels of wheat originally delivered to the site via horse and cart; a motif that is displayed in the artwork. Painted by artist Tim Bowtell.
