50 years ago, in February 1968. Big changes to the Eltham township were afoot with the pending duplication of Main Road. A series of approximately 50 photos were taken in February 1968 by an unknown person of the section of Main Road planned for duplication, commencing at Pitt Street and travelling towards Research through the shopping centre, finishing at Elsa Court.
These images now form a showcase collections on Historypin, an online tool which combines with Google Street View to transition between views from ‘Then’ to ‘Now’.  A number of key images will be viewed with the opportunity to provide comments and personal recollections.
