KIMBERLEY MURAL artist, Julian Bale, has created a mural depicting notable Sheffield inventor Alfie Rowe.

Alfie was well-known for several of his inventions, including the first self-serve petrol pump, the third ring on a piston, the first public address system for north-west Tasmania, and a trailer-mounted steam powered oven.

The mural features Alfie at work in his garage and incorporates a 3D metal replica of his self-serve pump.

Mr. Bale undertook the project after making a promise to Alfie some years ago to paint a mural of him in the town and said he took great joy in the process. The mural is located on Alfie’s old garage.
