Actually, this is looking south on Great Northern Rd at Five Dock. Perhaps Western's removed themselves from Enmore after the funeral notice linked in the previous comment. I know Enmore well and this is not the same topography. The tram lines veer to the left midway, which means they're following a main road. There is no such route at Enmore. Also, the road at the far end veers right, not left. If you look at Google Street View south from Garfield St, you'll see the parapet on the building on the right matches the one in the photo. Ramsay Road...

Melbourne High School And Jim's Stab Punt and School Football..<br/><br/>Melbourne High enter & exit year of 1950. At the lilydale School I was very well known and at recess times I knew almost every one. I arrived all alone at Melbourne High as a fifth former and my prior sporting history was only known to myself.<br/>I was alone. When I came out at recess times I knew no one and no one knew me. So at Melbourne High I like many country kids I had no prior contacts with existing students . I knew no one & no one knew me.<br/>During recess there...

Having been schooled by nuns and Christian brothers, Dyer was nothing if not pragmatic. "Anything goes," ...

"Dick" Lee's low, powerful kick/pass.<br/>From a true kick, "Dick" Lee added Collingwood's seventh goal. Curtis then came to the front with some pleasing work. From a pass by "Dick" Lee, and mark, Curtis essayed a place kick from an angle so acute that there was barely room to manœvre the leather between the posts. The fine goal resulting received a deserved ovation. The same player cleverly marked a low, powerful kick from "Dick" Lee, and negotiated another fine goal.The final spell was prolific in behinds, Collingwood registering seven and Ge...
