Every month Cheryl Griffin and Ashley Smith write fabulous history articles for CBD News and Docklands News respectively. The articles are based on photographs from the RHSV collection.
This month Cheryl has been inspired by another Pierre Robin photo taken in 1959 from Hardware Lane, looking east down Lonsdale Street towards ICI house, Melbourne’s first skyscraper. You can read the full story here: Taking a walk through Melbourne streets with Pierre Robin – CBD News
And Ashley’s article is inspired by a photo looking west from Melbourne CBD across Batman’s swamp before it was drained.
