Constance Chang’s artwork, ‘Once upon a time’ delves into the history of Oxley where the Energex Padmount Transformer is located.
Through her own research, Constance discovered that the Oxley Railway Station opened in 1874 and is the oldest surviving island platform brick station building on the Brisbane suburban system! Around the time the station was being built, the Oxley Ham and Bacon factory was also established, eventually becoming one of the most successful and enduring businesses of the time until its closure in 1992. The ham and cheese produced by the factory was served in many venues across town similar to the butchery and classic café featured in her artwork.
