I had reason to go west. I went on number 59 tram and I then returned to the city from Glenbervie Railway Station to the city. I alighted from the tram at the corner of Mount Alexander Road and Leake Street in what is almost North Essendon.
Look what I found in behind what is now a real estate agent but was a hotel, possibly Victoria Hotel. Yes, it is a horse keeping place, a stable, complete with loft.
I walked eastwards along Glass Street looking at the houses and what else there was to see. Oh, what is this? A milk bar! And what period style might the decoration be? Don't click the pic, especially if you are inclined to fits, it only gets worse in close up.
Ah, cough cough, the real point, cough, of the trip, splutter, spit. The holy grail. A cigarette advertisement.
I had reason to stop off along the way home at Moonee Ponds. No other word for Moonee Ponds Station than gorgeous.
