Having worked a while at Fortitude Valley, and even made documentation for the real railway station (used to be named Brunswick Street), this is an exhibition opportunity, for me.

Being on exhibition is the essence of trade by a person well known in Australia, by face and comment, and his moniker HG.

That HG made a life of "making up things on the spot" which was an absolute blessing (an art) for him who had a diagnosis of dyslexia". This impediment gave him impetus and he did not let it become an intrusion.

Back to Attitude and Fortitude Valley, and people to meet together to focus on art, "Go well GJ, Mr Jordan".
