Another on my series of photos from ten years ago: January 2014. What a stupid place to park – right in the middle of the tram stop Signs of climate change were evident in 2013. It’s not getting any better. Technically this was December 2013 – we had gone to the early fireworks. Plenty of ... [More]
Here’s another in my series of old photos from ten years ago – December 2013. Upgraded lighting at bus stops? Alas no – it was just an antique shop display adjacent to a bus stop. A less glamorous stop: the Elizabeth Street tram terminus – still lacking platform stops even in 2023. It was less ... [More]
Another in my regular series of posts of photos from ten years ago: covering November 2013. Train patronage was surging at this time, and it was obvious to passengers, with overcrowding at peak times. So with the crowding in mind, what was this new development at Flinders Street station? Additional capacity by reinstating platform 11? ... [More]
Another in my series of photos from ten years ago: October 2013. Travellers Aid had a fundraiser selling Myki card holders. I love the design of the top of the crown.

Here’s another in my series of old photos from ten years ago: September 2013. William Street in Melbourne CBD was given a makeover in 2019-20 to install protected bike lanes and tram platform stops.

Oops, I missed posting these in June: old photos from ten years ago. I’ll zip through these and try and post the July set in July. Fog on Bourke Street. Big dual cab utes are not a new problem, though they’re unfortunately much more numerous now. The driver of this one did not cover themselves ... [More]
Here’s another in my series of old photos from ten years ago – May 2013. Then Premier Napthine with member for Bentleigh Elizabeth Miller, transport minister Terry Mulder, PTV CEO Ian Dobbs and others, announcing the “Bayside Rail Upgrade” at Bentleigh station. The northern end of the platform at Bentleigh wasn’t exactly very roomy. But ... [More]
Marking 10 years of posting 10 year old photos, with one from 30 years ago.
Here’s another post of photos from ten years ago – this time March 2013. A Parkiteer Map was published in MX and it was a doozy for errors. A few to see just in this little glimpse. Spelling mistakes, lines in the wrong place, lines strung together… it had it all. A Hitachi train arrives ... [More]
I’m still behind on posting old photos from ten years ago, and catching COVID last week didn’t help. Here’s February 2013. Some motorists love to complain about impact of protected bike lanes. Here’s William Street before it got them. Difficult and dangerous for cyclists, but also demonstrably slow for motorists back then as well. Remember: ... [More]
