Here’s another in my series of old photos out of the vault from ten years ago.
We went to Bendigo for a couple of days, so here are a couple of snaps from that trip.
The only time I saw Powderfinger live was this “surprise” gig in Federation Square. (A surprise except a lot of people seemed to know they were coming.)
I must have been checking out the then-new bus turnaround at the western end of Lonsdale Street. Much of the area has since been redeveloped, including The Age building at left.
Remember these? Back when you could buy a tram ticket on a tram.
Yes, trams used to get crowded before the Free Tram Zone was instituted. But most of the trams are bigger now, and more frequent, and more crowded. (They also take about the same amount of time to get across the CBD, sometimes a little longer, according to timetables.)
Collins Place. Basically unchanged from this angle.
