take a tip from us


So I was browsing the 1966 Melways (it's online and way cool)and checked out the spot where our house is. Hey, Joan and Ed up the road had told us there used to be a tip there when they moved in, which was in the early 70s, so I wasn't thoroughly surprised to see that once had you sauntered, or gone anyway you liked (in those days I believe a go-kart pulled by a goat was a favoured method) down Lorraine Crescent you'd end up at the Broady tip. I guess I was just shocked that it was shaped like a giant yellow slug that had its head cut off by Johnstone St.
