MYSTERY SOLVED – locations as identified in captions of photos are the Snake Run at Bulleen Skatepark and Ringwood Skatepark formerly located in Bedford Park.
#MysteryMonday – Today’s images are of a skateboard park circa 1985. We do not believe it is at the former Fayrefield Hat Factory (now Eltham Fort Knox) though the former fishponds there were used as a skateboard facility in 1977 (see “Fishpond – The Training Ground”, 1977 Pools!, Vic Skate History 1974-1986). The facility may not even be in the Eltham district as another image on the roll of film is of the then new Nunawading Skateboard Club ramp now part of Box Hill Skate Park on Canterbury Road. The pictures may have been taken as part of a study for the development of Eltham Skate Park in Susan Street.
Can you identify it and its location? We’d love to hear from you; your thoughts and suggestions as to where it is, any stories you can tell about the area, and better still, any similar photos you can share?
Over to you . . .
