Station Pier - Minolta X300

I passed through this gate for the first time as a child migrant from England, in 1961. I ended up living in Albert Park for all of my school years, and spent so many great times playing around the piers, watching other migrants arrive from far away places like myself. I saw many leave these shores also, to the sound of "The carnival is over" by 'The Seekers'

The amount of paper streamers thrown, was amazing. I now realize how sad it must have been to leave family members behind and make that incredible journey to unknown lands.
