Elita Theatre Ashgrove
Foot Bridge 1965
A foot bridge was built by residents in about 1965, to enable women with strollers to cross the creek to reach the shop and the bus. Note the high level of the water, it has never remained at that level since the dam wall was raised.
Humorous anecdote. While the working bee was busy spanning the creek with timbers, a little girl piped up, “Mummy Mummy, Daddy’s getting his feet wet.” Daddy was up to his chin in the water, and we all had a good laugh.
