Continuing "My Story"
We moved into our first house in Springwood Rd in 1971. There was a deep drain running down the side of the road which we couldn't cross in the car outside our house. There was no culvert or driveway. We had to cross further down the road and drive up the footpath to reach our house. In 1973 the council built a culvert and driveway across the big drain.
The culvert with a maker post is just in the left hand corner of the photo. Then we had an almost proper access to the house.
This is the same road taken from the same spot in 2015. A four lane road with a nature strip in the middle.
We had a garage built on the end of the house but Bill used it as his shed. So he decided to add a carport onto the house.
The carport and little garden was finished. Bill was making two concrete strips as a driveway.
