Evolving Port

Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend change. Houses are changed or demolished and new forms of housing take their place. Port Houses records some of these changes.

Next door to this house, just to the right, was a garage. Before the house was offered for sale, the former owner's family held a garage sale. Her father had worked on the Railways, his daughter told me. His meticulous collection of tools was laid in front of our hungry garage sale eyes. I bought a few terracotta pots that I've planted up. 

I like taking a bit of Port with me from one place to another.
