It’s the last day of April, so here’s my monthly post of photos from ten years ago.
Early April 2008 seems to have been busy. I had this opinion piece published on the ABC web site, in relation to the then-just published Eddington “East West Link Needs Assessment“:

Anyway, the photos. Oh… this isn’t good. On 3rd of April, a tram shunting in Collins Street decided to go both ways at once. (I blogged about it at the time, and there are some better quality photos of it on Vicsig.)
Quirkly Degraves Street underpass/arcade shop Corky St Clair wasn’t very happy with Yarra Trams after works to build the Flinders Street tram superstop. (Nowadays they’re more concerned with the metro tunnel works impacting the arcade.)
Melbourne Museum put out a multiple choice quiz… in which all the options were wrong.
Which decade did electric trains *actually* start in Melbourne? 🚆🚋⚡🔌

Fancy some trendy cuisine? This is North Richmond, and I associate this photo with getting a lift in a friend’s car, with ABC Radio National playing, and hearing for the first time the excellent song “Grey in LA” by Loudon Wainwright III.
