'Raising the Rattler Pole - The Last of the Connies' is a public artwork by David Michael Bell, and serves as a tribute to the W-class 'rattler' tram.Positioned on the corner of Spencer Street and Flinders Street, this replica is finished in a bluestone effect and playfully upended in a dramatic fashion. This artwork is commissioned by the City of Melbourne Public Art Program, and available to see to the end of October 2018.

Comedy at Spleen runs right through October and up until Summer. For some laughs, check out the show on Mondays from 8.30pm to 10.30pm. Spleen Bar is located at 41 Bourke Street in Melbourne.
