Footscray Community Profile

My friend Ben Liney just recently moved to Footscray and has produced this beautiful Footscray Community Profile for the Community Work Course he is presently undertaking with Praxis.  His sensitivity for people, pictures, place and design reminds me of how much I love my town! I particularly love the picture above that he found of the Buxton Park Housing Estate.  Today, I can see the sole standing house in the left mid-ground (known as Govan’s House) when I stand in the front yard of my own house ‘Gwenroy’ which was built two years later in 1887.  Fascinating to see what the District looked like pre-settlement… and now!
