WAY BACK WHEN WITH GE­ORGE BALSILLIE

Western Times - - NEWS -

BLOCK­AGE: As we fol­low the pipe lay­ing pro­ject with Keith Grif­fith’s al­bum, we find things have come to a stand­still. Just as work­men had reached the Sturt St cross­ing, a flood came down the gully and equip­ment had to be moved to higher ground. It is Oc­to­ber 1954 and our photo is taken from the Tat­ter­sall’s Ho­tel look­ing across Sturt St to the rear of the state school grounds and then over the gully. HS Dawkin’s tim­ber yard and the Pic­ture Theatre com­plete the skyline. Next week we will look at the last photo in this se­ries as the job nears com­ple­tion.

PHOTO: CON­TRIB­UTED
