  1. Following Alan's challenge to recreate a historic view of Melbourne, I started searching the State Library's online photo archive to find a slightly easier one than blagging my way onto the roof of Victoria Barracks. This one caught my eye, as I walk through this scene each day when I walk back to the station from my office. The library catalogue suggests a date of 1870-1880 and looking at the smoke from the chimney of the Sir Charles Hotham Hotel, there must have been a fair breeze blowing that day. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out quite so easy. Whilst I reckon I could find the spot where the photo was taken from, the current view isn't quite as attractive.... DSCF4349. I did try a shot from in the other side of the bridge, but didn't have a wide enough lens and have had to put together a bit of a panorama instead. city But then a bit more library searching came up with this image... This is probably right in the middle of the intersection, but nearer in terms of angle to what I can access today. The library catalogue dates this between 1910 and 1914. The tram route now comes straight along out of the picture, but if I keep an eye on the traffic lights and take the wider lens with me, I might just get something close to this second image.
  2. Following on from my earlier historic Melbourne post, a few blocks further east, another interesting corner. FS0 4 Swanston Street looking north. Most people shoot this corner looking towards the station in the southwestern corner of the intersection, but I think this direction is quite an interesting choice. Another interesting thing is that both of Melbourne's cathedrals were completed without spires, which were later added in the 1920's or '30's. Looking back at the picture Alan posted that started this idea in this thread, the tall towers/spires are Town Hall (left of centre), Scots Church (tallest, in centre) and St Michael's Uniting Church (second tallest, slightly right of centre). I'm not sure about the other 3-4 towers visible in that shot, but they don't seem to be current churches. ,
