homeless people sleep on benches a lot, maybe this is a design for them so they don't roll off the edge!
Haha! I'm so going on a field trip.
Totally a little shelter. Lay down throw a tarp and you've got a little tube sleeping house.
Can you post a larger version of that photo?
For some reason the picture from the camera phone didn't come through as a big enough size.I'll back and do more documentation...
I know who made that! Matt Hincman is the artist who crafted that bench. Matt's awesome.
