MysteryMonday: Walsh Street, Eltham, c.1989

SOLVED: Near 5 Walsh Street, Eltham; looking east up Walsh Street from near Bolton Street

New speed calming measures, somewhere in the Shire of Eltham, c.1989 (from the collection of Eltham District Historical Society).

#MysteryMonday – Today’s image is again of a residential area; once again featuring the new speed calming devices introduced by the Shire of Eltham, circa 1989. These residential roadscapes can sometimes be the hardest to solve unless you are familiar with the road. Given the level of success achieved so far, only two MysteryMonday posts remain unsolved since we started, we think this is a great way to assist us reducing our catalogue backlog.

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

Over to you . . .

#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.
