Paul Barton is a director at the 'Tanks Arts Centre'. He is also the proud owner of a Moke. The tanks were built during WW2 in a rainforest area to store fuel which was piped by gravitydown to the harbour in Cairns for distribution. The Council made a decision in the 1990s to gradually convert these tanks to house an Arts Centre.
The addition of a very nice roof was one of the first essentials followed
by the installation of a host of items which cumulated in a fantastically cosy venue for shows and displays.
As part of a 'PechaKucha'night Paul came up with an excellent 20 minute Slide Show in
Tank number 3 and of course 'The Moke' was the subject. An audience of well over 100 were
totally fascinated by his commentary and the miscellany of photos he displayed to prove that the Moke is something very
unique in the annals of history. Well done Paul for a truly tremendous show!
