We are in the midst of winter here now, it is getting quite cold in our little valley, and yesterday was the first day it didn’t rain for what seems like weeks.
Fortunately, the weather has taken a small turn for the better and even though this morning you could barely see the other side of the road for the fog the sun managed to break through by 11, I even managed to get some washing on the line. Woo Hoo!
Foggy mornings are my favourite kind of morning, especially when we are camping (and I am wrapped up in a warm jacket with bacon and eggs sizzling away over the fire of course!)
I doubt the man in the picture below who was driving this cart in front of Flinders Street Station on a misty 1924 morning had the same appreciation for them that I do though!
I wonder if the Argus photographer had to wait for a while for the traffic to clear before snapping this moody picture, can you imagine the Flinders Street of today being so quiet? –>
According to a City of Melbourne website it is ‘the busiest suburban railway station in the southern hemisphere, with over 1500 trains and 110,000 commuters passing through each day. Its 708 metre main platform is the fourth longest railway platform in the world.’
Interesting figures, although I wouldn’t have thought Flinders Street Station could ever be described as suburban, surely you couldn’t get much closer to the city than this!
