I am on a bus on my way to Footscray. Look, the wheel is nearly fixed.
Beware! St Monica's catholic primary school has scarecrow protection.
No more do wharf labourers lug sacks around on their shoulders. Our ports are very highly mechanised and can move thousands of arriving plasma tvs an hour.
A little cutesy work at a roundabout. Is it Noddy's car?
Footscray is not very far from the city and unlike much of the eastern and south eastern suburbs, it has a good view of the city skyline.
A nice looking cafe with lots of Mums and toddlers.
Down on the banks of the Maribyrnong River was a a rear view of a very substantial property. Let me check. It may well be the rear of the Footscray Community Arts Centre and possibly the rear of the cafe above.
Damaged table top. It is nice to install such things, but there must always be a maintenance allowance.
There are many rotting wharf timbers along the river bank. The do add character.
Footscray Jetty with the Footscray Road/Napier Street bridge.
Under Footscray Road/Napier Street I walk, by way of a tunnel.
The much more substantial Footscray Wharfs. There were quite a number of fishermen(sic) trying their luck. The area was very industrial but now is partly residential.
Back a bit from here, the old train line could still be used but obviously now in this section, it is unusable. Where is it from and where does it go? Wait. It leaves the main Footscray train line just after the river crossing and then branches after Lyons Street and soon ends. Well, that took some time. One map I have has the line ending after Somerville Road where it is called Footscray Goods Line and I can trace it to there with photo maps. I suggest it was simply the Footscray Goods Line.
