Cnr Collins & Elizabeth Streets at end of shopping day 1957 by 

I got here a little earlier than most times and there were some shoppers going to catch trains or trams. The traffic on the road was a little more than usual showing how the trams are restricted to the centre of the road with only two lanes of traffic passing between them and the footpath

Spend most of my time with images of yesterday (or before), but enjoy use of the Pentax K3 when possible.

    The light in this image is so warm and lovely and backlights the citizens of Melbourne perfectly. Your exposure in this photo is so good considering you were shooting into the sun. Thanks for sharing this image!

    It looks like a movie set! with the best detail of the period researched perfectly!
    The clarity of your shot makes you forget it is not taken recently but 50 years ago!
    This also means it is infinitely important! ☼ BRAVO! ☼

    i love the ambience of the sun on the street & the people…it really transports me to that moment in time…to think that I was walking across that very same street only a few days ago. It is also good to know that alot of the architecture is still preserved because I can still recognise the streets judging by the buildings.

  • Thank ypu for your interest and comments.
