Buttons

I was wandering around off the paths in High Park, which is one of the largest parks in the city, when I happened upon this scene of discarded pin-back buttons. Most of them are fairly old political buttons supporting members of the Liberal party. I'm sure there is a story behind this but I have no idea what it is!

Some there are probably for collectors.

It is thoughtless of whoever did it to litter.

Not good Pat, it looks like littering.

I reckon someone just got so fed up with the way politics are these days and threw them away in disgust :)
p.s. How does your friend enjoy his time in Perth. Pemberton is a beautiful area.

That is certainly interesting. But shame on people for littering!

How very odd. Did you scoop them up?

TexWisGirl said...

wow! someone was making a (anti) political statement! :)

Do you think someone had a change of heart and/or political leanings? In my opinion, kind of a sad one (or at least it would be if we were talking US politics, I really have no idea about yours and should keep my mouth shut anyway ;>)!)

Spreading of ashes and meaningful mementos after friends took the ones the wanted?
