Melbourne as it was 70 years ago

For those who love before and after photos, and who doesn’t, a fascinating new site has been launched called Melbourne 1945.

Based on aerial photographs commissioned by the Department of Crown Lands and Survey, and conducted by Adastra Airways, a slider enables the viewer to change the view from 1945 to current day.

The 1945 survey covers the Eltham district extending east to Research and north to St Helena.
