MysteryMonday: Yvonne’s Dressmaking and Alteration Service, 1987

#MysteryMonday – Today’s image is a Main Road somewhere in the former Shire of Eltham. It was taken in 1987 and displayed along with a number of other panels at the 1987 Eltham Community Festival as part of the Eltham Shire Council display of infrastructure and services. Only problem is, we can not work out where this particular photo was taken. The only real identifying feature is the shop sign for Yvonne’s Dressmaking and Alteration Service. And no, it is not 23 Paris Street, Alliston, Ontario, Canada.

Can you identify this location? We’d love to hear from you; your thoughts and suggestions as to where it might be and help us catalogue this images.

Over to you . . .

. . . and remember, if this proves to easy for you, there is always last week’s MysteryMonday, which remains unsolved.

  1. I tweeted you, but I’ll answer here too because why not? Main Road, Hurstbridge. The building Yvonne’s is in has been pulled down and is now Hurstbridge Saddlery (though it’s been a few things since the building went). The brick wall of the milkbar can be seen in the distance with a large blue sign on it.


  2. I THINK it might be Main road just past the Eltham Hotel? which would be back a bit on the left hand side of the photo? as you go down the little incline?? yes? No?
