Prospect St. Kangaroo Point in 1950

This is a fascinating photo showing a typical street in the 1950s before development of what is now Dockside. A time when streets were unpaved, cottages were huddled close together and the road led directly down to the waterfront and the busy shipyard of Evans Deakin. All that’s gone now! The river view from the top of Prospect Street is blocked by the high-rises of the Dockside Precinct, shops and cafés have taken the place of cottages and the Dockside Ferry terminal and river pontoons have replaced the shipyards.

Prospect Street in a different era – leading down to the shipyards in what is now the Dockside Precinct.
