MysteryMonday: Rural Road Infrastructure, Shire of Eltham, c.1987

#MysteryMonday – Today’s images are from a roll of 35mm colour negative film. There are 12 images in total; part of the Shire of Eltham infrastructure works on rural roads. It is believed they were taken around 1987.

Can you identify these? Not all the frames have been posted as they are of detail like potholes, etc that add no value to the identification of the road or area.

We’d love to hear from you; your thoughts and suggestions as to where they are and help us catalogue these images.

#MysteryMonday – Today’s image is again of a residential area; you are all so good in solving these more innocuous ones. It is a great help to us as we just keep putting off cataloguing them until we can positively identify the location. And again, it’s one of those that you either know it or not but everyone will know somewhere that looks like it, which is what can make it difficult. There are no signage clues other than the brand new speed hump signs in the immediate foreground and in the distance at the hard right hand bend. The Shire of Eltham took a number of photographs of new speed hump installations and new kerb and channeling throughout the Shire, circa 1989. Which probably explains why we have so many. Not so interesting at the time but as the development march continues, they become more valuable as a keepsake of what we once had.
