#MysteryMonday – Today’s images are again of a residential area, possibly Eltham or Montmorency. There appears to be two locations or streets involved though the images are sequential on a roll of film bracketed between the Eltham Stock Feed store (at the corner of York Street and Main Road) and Montmorency Railway Station. The first image (a panormaic stitch of two frames) shows a house, number 76, with a typical stone edged boundary so favoured by the Shire of Eltham during road and footpath construction. The remaining three images are a sequence of another property most likely another street nearby. Given the shadows, the street may have a north-south orientation.

Do these street views strike a chord with you, perhaps you even know someone who may live there. Perhaps the house is yours. It is very possible the house may have now been significantly modified or even knocked down.

Can you identify it? 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 . . .

  1. The main feature photo in this post could be No. 76 Bible Street Eltham, which along with its neighbour have since been redeveloped. Looking at the rock wall it is difficult to match up with Google Street View but this could be because it may have been altered. Interestingly, Number 76 has what appears to be a planning application notice in the front garden and the date of the film is c.1985. A check of 76 Bible Street on realestate.com.au shows that 76 Bible Street was built in 1985
