Melbourne & Victorian Threads:

The links point to the first posting in the thread, and if there is a member cited, it is on the basis of the first posting. Usually this has been a photo collection, but in some cases it has been just a request for information.

I've only included those that are geographically quite specific, and excluded current construction projects and photographic "ambles" (my visit to Melbourne, fog in the city, New Year fireworks etc.) By and large, I've left out Docklands and Soutbank because, essentially I had enough work already (by my count there's 139 links below). I've also excluded skyline shots , general panoramas, and so on. Apologies to anyone who feels left out: let me know.

I've only cited the name of the member who started the thread where it was necessary in order to identify similarly named threads. The Collector in particular did most of the CBD street threads, and Bronteboy and Olderfleet did significant sets of suburban threads.Many others have also contributed magnificently.

In general, threads for the same "topic" are listed most-recent first. "Older" implies a previous thread by the same author. I organized the city street groups in an obvious manner, and made an attempt to alphabetize the suburban and regional threads.

That doesn't mean there's nothing left looking at in the thread, since later entries may contain content of one sort or another. Example: I have Ballarat photos here, but haven't started a Ballarat thread.

Please PM me if you start a thread that you think should be included here: I may not notice it!
