More big things

Another of the big things in Logan.

This is the Big Gun which has been here for as long as I can remember. It has moved from the rooftop of the fruit market and up onto this new structure as the original shops have grown over time.

It is now a growers market with all your basic food needs.

As for the Big Gun, this relic of World War II is one of the best-known landmarks in Logan City. It is a 155mm field gun and had a range of almost 30km. In 1972, Bruno Laspina started “The Big Gun Fruit Mart” near the wrecker’s yard. The 7-ton gun was hoisted onto the roof of the fruit mart and has remained in this locality ever since.
