The chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo

  'Get to your places!' shouted the Queen in a voice of thunder, and people began running about in all directions, tumbling up against each other; however, they got settled down in a minute or two, and the game began. Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in her life; it was all ridges and furrows; the balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and to stand on their hands and feet, to make the arches'. 

 Taking a break at the Essendon Croquet Club in Brewster Street.

VR Signal Department

A nice solid looking steel box along the railway line in Moonee Ponds.  It was manufactured by AR & Co, Hebburn, England.  Can it have been in place since the line was electrified in 1918?  Still in use if the padlock is anything to go by.
