Meet you in the city
and we’ll go from there
What time you wanna meet up?
I know exactly where
I get off at four
so perhaps at quarter past
We’ll catch the number one down
D’you think the sun will last?
Sure it’s daylight savings
and there’s a real kick in it today
But there’ll be crowds down on the beach
Reckon the pier will be the way
Ok I’ll see you at four fifteen
don’t forget my towel and togs
Yeah four fifteen at Flinders St
On the steps under the clocks!
Well that’s what those two were planning! wonder what everyone else has :O)
For over 150 years [aprox] that has been the meeting place of Melbournians – it’s never even stated in conversations! – “We’ll meet up in the city” is ALWAYS under the Flinders St Clocks!
I also remember once when they tried to take the clocks away – I think every Melbournian shouted NO!
Thank God they haven’t! :O)
Thank you to the awesome Gregory John O’Flaherty for this record of our Awesome Icon Flinders St Station
The way Greg’s captured it makes me feel like home! – any Melbournian should have a copy of this in their bag when travelling Interstate or OS
Keep Happy! :O)
