Flinders street circa 1999

    This body of work spans more than 12 years, with a couple of major breaks in the last 8 or so. Having rediscovered my joy for film this project is now back in full swing.

      Is that the bridge on the corner of Spencer and Flinders St?

      » I'm actually not sure how old the bridge is I'd need to dom some research?

      cheers

      no it's further up in Flinders street, this was taken so long ago before it was tuned into either the Aquarium, or a car park.

      how old is Melbourne, by the way ? (serious question!) I'm not very well informed about Australia.
      and - how old is this special part of the town? it seems to be an older part.
      the bridge looks like being build in the early 20th century.

      White settlers first founded the modern city that is Melbourne in 1835, it eventually flourished quite quickly due to the gold found in the goldfields north and west of Melbourne in Ballarat and Bendigo. I'm guessing these bridges were built after they introduced stream trains to Victoria in possibly in the early 1900's, so your guess is pretty spot on.

      it amazes me again and again, when finding out, how 'young' Australia actually is.
      not talking about the Aborigines.

      yes by world standards we are indeed a young country in terms of white settlement, I remember one trip overseas in 2004, we were inn Venice and were accessing the internet to contact 'home'. I was astounded by the idea that I was sitting in a room facing a 400+ year old wall using a technology that was only a few years old to 'instantly' message home. An impossible experience here.

      Tasmania is older than Melbourne. The highway from Launceston to Hobart is very Georgian. It was a region of large estates and it mostly built by convict labour.

      yes I know it. It's an interesting bridge. I've often photographed around it--though never the bridge itself.

      Thanks Gary, your comment has evoked some strange yet pleasant memories about this place, something I may need to explore further.
