Another in my series of photos from ten years ago.
This month: July 2009.
Then-metropolitan train operator Connex was advertising the addition of more station staff around the network.
Frankston station. I think the construction was an upgrade to the bus interchange… which was all replaced again in 2018.
Mordialloc station (I think)
Richmond station, before the entirety of the platforms got shelter.
The old Bentleigh station, before the crossing was removed, with its almost unique red man and “Another train coming” displays.
A non-transport photo: the Bentleigh Priceline made me laugh, with its placement of weight management and confectionery in the same aisle.
Fears of distraction from mobile phones aren’t new – but back then, they thought you might be making a phone call, rather than staring at the screen.
New sensors had started being fitted to the Metcard gates in preparation for the introduction of Myki at the end of 2009. This is the Elizabeth Street entrance to Flinders Street Station.
Advertising for tram and bus lanes. Yeah, we could do with more of those. Lanes that is (and enforcement), not advertising.
Victoria Street, Abbotsford – the Skipping Girl sign.
