Beacon views

Do you remember that a previous post on the beacons 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.

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

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