Foster & Lonsdale Streets, Dandenong, Pre 1900s.

Looking up Foster Street as it crosses Lonsdale Street. On the right side is Dandenong park, Foster street sweeps left and up the hill as it passes the fence on the left You can see the Protestant Church beyond the empty space that would later be home to the 2nd Scout Hall, and presently the Court House. Pultney street swings up the back of the park with Langhorne street just after the church. The original Catholic Church is just out of focus further up the hill.

The lady on the left corner looks familiar with an old time resident, but without a name we must hesitate from naming her for certainty. A gas lamp still looks over the intersection, it would be some time before electricity started to take over.
