Continuing my series of ten year old photos… The serene setting of Caulfield South Primary School, where my kids went. Like many schools of that era, the original main building is lovely, and conceals the portable classrooms out the back. The old Elizabeth Street tram stop on Collins Street, westbound. It’s not hard to see ... [More]
For this month, I don’t have very many great photos of interest, but here goes… We must have been on the way to Marita’s house in Footscray. This is the Footscray Road intersection with Citylink, back when there was a level crossing underneath the tollway, where slow freight trains used to run in and out ... [More]
Another batch of photos from ten years ago: January 2004. My old kitchen in the house I rented in Carnegie for two years, with the horrible lime green bench tops. Also showing old toaster, the old milk I used to buy, an old land line phone (now plugged into the VOIP modem/router) and the kettle ... [More]
Continuing my series of ten year old photos… The Christmas tram in Flinders Street Grumpy Daniel Next, perhaps the most useless Melbourne public transport map ever produced. It doesn’t show the most well-known location, the CBD, and shows very few others. It also has numerous errors, including: Implies Sandringham is next to Clayton. Implies Glen ... [More]
It was a glorious weekend in Rutherglen, where I had the privilege of attending a family wedding. Here’s one shot the official photographer didn’t get… Congratulations, Adrian and Donna.
Here is another in my series of old photos from when I first got a digital camera. M>Train (which came after Bayside trains, and before Connex) had a rather nice livery and logo. Here’s a Comeng train heading towards the city on the outer stretches of the Upfield line. Myself and Peter, another PTUA bod, ... [More]
By September 2003, I was using the digital camera a little more. Yum yum yum — doughnuts at the Queen Victoria Market One for the gunzels — trains in the yards outside Spencer Street Station (click here to see it bigger) Here’s one showing the old Spencer Street building… I think those who complain about ...

Another in my collection of photos from ten years ago… Murrumbeena, in the days of M>Train. I quite liked the logo and slogan (“Moving Melbourne”) — less sure about the colours, and of course the splitting of the network into different operators was silly. 2003 was probably the best fall of snow at Mount Donna ...
