Continuing my monthly series of photos from ten years ago…
By mid-2003 it was almost four years since privatisation of trains and trams, but as you can see from this photo in Swanston Street (at Lonsdale Street), many trams still had The Met liveries. This tram stop (with interchange to many Lonsdale Street buses) has since been deleted.
The skyline looking southwest across the CBD. I assume just across the river it’s the Eureka Tower that’s under construction.
After our trip to the museum, we caught the train home. I think a Wiggles Concert had been running, and the train was packed — not helped by the common practice at the time of running short trains on weekends. Since then, we’ve got long trains all week, and doubled services on the three busiest lines.
I moved house from Glen Huntly to Carnegie this month. As part of a clearout, I disposed of this old computer. (This clip was originally posted at the time on Google Video — a service which has since been retired.)
