ThrowbackThursday: Hurstbridge Shops, c.1989

#ThrowbackThursday – In continuing with our shopping theme from last week, today we time travel back approximately 30 years to the late 1980s and revisit some of the shops along the Heidelberg-Kinglake Road in Hurstbridge. Some have gone, some have changed and some have remained. Those that are featured in these images are  the Coin Laundry (replaced now by the popular Wild Wombat Cafe), Corrigan’s Newsagency, Ian McCubbin and Associates (Solicitors), Jowett Real Estate, Naomi’s Nook, Stoneground Bake House, and the Take away food store.

What are your memories of these times and shops? Any popular hang-outs? Who is still there and who do wish still was?
