BUILD­ING CHARLEVILLE: To­day we con­tinue fol­low­ing the Grif­fith work team down Wat­son St in 1954. No­tice that they have crossed over the Wills St in­ter­sec­tion. As Keith has taken this photo look­ing downWat­son St, a cou­ple of school girls are re­lax­ing on seats un­der a cedar tree, dur­ing lunch break. The school is on the left and Bradley’s Gully cross­ing is in the back­ground be­hind the sec­ond cedar tree. To the right of the trench on the cor­ner is Vic Cal­cino’s home ser­vice cen­tre shop. Vic was as­sisted by his mother and later on Pat Byrnes in the of­fice and Cyril McCon­nell in ser­vice­work. To­day this cor­ner is oc­cu­pied by the road house. Next week we will see the work­ers as their progress is in­ter­rupted by a mas­sive flood in the gully.
