Then and Now

The Melbourne Cricket Ground
The site of Test Matches, Football Grand Finals and the first bicycle race in 1869.
The Melbourne Cricket Club - Est 1838.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground in the 1860/1870s

And later in 1910

Today - a photo from the Web by Iain Mullan


  1. What a magnificent arena in which to play the beautiful game.... even if the cricket played by my compatriots hasn't been so beautiful, lately!!! ;o(

  2. The grandstand in the 1860s-70s (first photo) was gorgeous. Somebody took a lot of time designing something functional, of course, but also attractive.
