MYSTERY SOLVED – Mountainview Road, Briar Hill just near No. 145
#MysteryMonday – Today’s images are again of a residential area, possibly Eltham or Montmorency but we are not sure. They were taken in the early to mid 1960s. Work is under way at the house one down from the bend where two piles of bluestone are gathered; possibly for terrace edging of the driveway and footpath. These images were from a strip of negatives, most likely taken by a Shire of Eltham employee so the works could have been part of council operations. Many streets in the shire have stonework edges for gardens abutting footpaths where the the roads have been cut into the terrain. Much of this stone masonry work was undertaken for the council by C.J. Watson and Sons.
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 or similar photos you can share?
Over to you . . .
