    Re: Our Great WOOF Community

    I went to Arden st when the Gasometer loomed over the ground. Did anyone else?


    I only found out the other day what a gasometer actually does though. They sound pretty dangerous.
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    I use to go there is the 70s with mates, and funnily enough ended up living around the corner in the late 80's.

    Was the gasometer there when Led Zeppelin (?) played there? I think it was but I was more aware of the beautiful girls we had with us.

    The best one I remember wasn't even a bulldog match. Friends of the family who barracked for Fitzroy used to take me if I couldn't convince anyone to take to see Footscray and when North were at the top of their game in the 1970s they took me to see North and Fitzroy at Arden street. Late in the last quarter North were miles in front when we decided that we'd beat the traffic and leave a bit early. We walked a few metres and Fitzroy kicked a few goals so we stopped a while and watched and North took over again, so we walked a few more metres and Fitzroy hit the front and then won the game as we carefully wandered around the outer pretending that we were leaving but we weren't really leaving because we'd worked out that fate was mucking as around!

    So did I! I ended up living in Sutton street. Horrible bloody old tenement it was. It had an outside toilet and bathroom and was freezing.


    Does anyone remember that fight Tony Mundine (Anthony's old man He could actually box though) had at Arden street? I reckon Tony was waving at a mate of his in the crowd when his opponent (A Mexican fighter I think) knocked him into the middle of next week with a punch that started from the floor, there were members of the crowd yelling trying to draw his attention to the bolo punch his opponent was about to throw...


    Looked up the Mexican's name and I think it was Luis Manuel Rodríguez

    We rented back then-you'd wake up in the morning or get home from work to find out someone new had moved in, I can remember once at a party the cops standing at the front door and asking "Is there anyone here at the moment who actually lives here???" It was easy enough to say 'no' back then and it was pretty much impossible to prove. I reckon it was about $35 a week. We moved to North st in Footscray (in 1989) after that in to a three bedroom house for $40 a week. At Footscray we had an inside bathroom (Luxury!) but still had an outside toilet.
