    Only ever see this in films set in American ghettoes, but here they are in Thornbury. And they're old Converse...

    This photo has turned out to be strangely popular, it is rated as my most interestingnessed. Bizarre

    Turns out that a few other folks have some hanging shoes nearby too:
    Helen Morgan

    Anyone got any more?

    And I found Flickr groups:
    Shoes on Powerlines
    High-flung shoes
    Shoes on Telephone Lines

    the doubtful guest, Fettes Vette, and 34 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Amy, I thought so when I saw the photos near Merri Creek. This was just off Darebin Road

      Someone bless all canvas high tops and keep them safe!

      Okay, I found it. What a strange page... It doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I doubt I'll be using it often
