Many steel poles along St Kilda Road have been replaced. The tram support wires were moved to the new posts. The lights were moved or new ones put on the new posts but between the old and new hung some temporary looking electrical connections. And so they stayed for a couple of years I think. Finally work crews have come along, dug up the ground, removed wires no doubt connected some wires underground. They all did a neat a tidy job. I did not see it, but the old poles have now been removed, no doubt by a large machine with a claw that clamps around the pole and lifts it out of the ground. The old pole has now gone.
The magnolia blooms have come and gone, with just this photo of the one at the house next to the synagogue to remind me.

The side of the very nice Royce Hotel.
And that was the end of a lovely sunny day.
The construction behind the old Albert Park Manor is creeping closer to completion. The blue crane within the building has now been removed by the biggest cherry picker you have ever seen.
I heard the Royal Melbourne Show mentioned once on tv and saw these banners. Otherwise I would not have known the show was on. Where were the grizzly kids carrying show bags around after a big day at the show? I think attendance figures must be right down.
