Brisbane Photos: Jacob's Ladder in the city, painted bright red

Jacob's Ladder is a steep set of stairs in King Edward Park in town, connecting Turbot St and the medical specialist precinct of Wickham St. Click here to see a Google Map.

Jacob's Ladder has recently been done up, after being ignored for a long time. These photos by flickr user Hello J. show the new bright red colour scheme, and some of the art that's been made into part of the stairs.

For all of Hello J.'s photos of Jacob's Ladder, click here. Jacob's Ladder is named after the Bible story - after Jacob had ripped off his brother Esau by fooling their father, he was on the run and saw a ladder reaching to heaven, in a dream.
