Alpha Book Lounge has been located in the Christ Church Op Shop, North Essendon, by Marilyn Kenny. Once again, this relic of a circulating library can tell us about the sort of books the libraries stocked, the length of time they spent on the shelf, changes in opening hours and the fact that the library was co-located with a dry cleaning business, and expands the time period we know the library operated. Click on the link above for more details about the Alpha Book Lounge which operated in Napier St, Strathmore from about 1953 to 1974. This is an earlier post on the Alpha Book Lounge.

In view of the speed with which the old homes of the district are being demolished and replaced, I have begun a new section of the Time Travellers website for original photos of the old homes. You can find the link from the front page. The house above is "Anchorage', still standing at 25 Carlyle St, Moonee Ponds.
