Time Out says

Just a hop and a skip away from ‘The Public Purse’ are these three creepy life-sized sculptures of whimsically skinny businessmen waiting at the set of lights on the corner of Bourke and Swanston streets. What most Melburnians probably don’t know is that they’re named after three early pioneers of the city: John Batman, Charles Swanston and Robert Hoddle. Melburnians probably also don’t know that the sculptures are a gift from the Republic of Nauru to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Melbourne.
