Changes in Bridge Street

The Bridge St streetscape works are very nearly done - only some plants to go in.  Did you know that Woodruff Terrace, pictured here, was once 'Woodruffs' -  a very substantial dairy. Woodruff was several times mayor of Port Melbourne and for a brief time mayor of the City of Melbourne.

Janet, it's easy to forget how much it has changed. Good to see the comparison.

For anyone looking for the Port Melbourne Historical & Preservation Society website try http://home.vicnet.net.au/~pmhps.

Thanks David - I'll correct that address.
