In the fifties and early sixties, the business part of Ballaarat was in lower Main Road. The block between Eureka and Esmond (now York) Streets, was a very hive of trade. In that one block were sixty shops, twelve hotels, and four large well equipped theatres. Shops and hotels did not close till midnight and the roadway was always crowded with laughing noisy people.
All this was about to change..........(next tip)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
