The Moon Viewing Platform

Reminiscence from Arthur's nephew, Christopher Erickson

Not sure where the term “Moon Viewing Platform” came from as it was not originally referred to as such. It had been a marble that Arthur had scored from the demolition of the old police station, but became so cracked over time it had to be replaced. Geoff and I installed this granite under Arthur’s supervision which he described as the “Egyptian way” with a sand base. The granite was donated by Frank Mahovolich, a great supporter of Arthur.

I always thought the marble looked better, but you don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
