ThrowbackThursday: Research Football Club 1959 Premiers

#ThrowbackThursday – Today we time travel back to the Eltham Easter Festival c.1960 and the ERSILAC parade featuring the Research Football Club float proudly flying their 1959 Premiers banner.

Who was there and can remember this?

Does anyone know what the ERSILAC parade was?

As always, we love to read your comments and learn of your memories of times gone by; both recent and distant.

ThrowbackThursday: Shire of Eltham Centenary Parade

#ThrowbackThursday – Today we time travel back to the centenary celebrations for the former Shire of Eltham and the parade held on April 10, 1971 as it progresses along Main Road. There is an enormous amount of detail captured in this image, some of it long gone, some still there and some just beginning. Look for the construction works on the Eltham Village Shopping Centre, site of the former Shire Offices at the corner at Main Road and Arthur Street.
