Beacon views

Do you remember that in a previous post I mentioned that the off shore beacon used to have a timber walkway connecting it to the shore? These two great images from the City of Port Phillip’s collection show this perfectly.

From the left looking towards the foreshore:  the Commonwealth Engine Works  and on the right the Missions to Seamen.

The citation says the photos were taken between 1960 and 1970. Can you assist with dating the pictures more accurately?

To view more images from the City of Port Phillip collection go to Heritage : Port Phillip and search the heritage database

Got some information to add, some photos to show, some memories to share?
