What year was this? Maybe 1998. Our street in Balaclava flooded. Across Chapel Street in the distant part of the photo is St Kilda Primary School. The view of the school past the playgrounds is now blocked by one of Kev 07's school hall type buildings. Our house, although set low, did not flood and R's car only had wet wheels and he was ready to move it if necessary. I was at work. I drove home so cautiously with water, water everywhere, but eventually the Humber failed to proceed because of a wet ignition system about a kilometre from home. I walked home with brolly held aloft and returned later with a can of dewatering fluid for the distributor and fetched the car home.
