Historic gates leading to Frankston Park.

Description

The Frankston Oval Gates were obtained from the Old Melbourne Gaol that had parts previously demolished. The massive iron gates were erected at the Frankston Oval where gate posts were built by stone worker Thomas Ferbnache during the time of the Second World War. Most impressive in stature, the gate posts were constructed in a random rubble form of medium sized boulders mined from local quarries.
