A snapshot of Montague

07 Sep 2017

A snapshot of Montague Image

Photographer Vicky Ellmore shared a series of intriguing images online last month capturing Montague during a walking tour of the precinct as part of Open House Melbourne.

The July 30 walk was led by Port Places convener and former City of Port Phillip Mayor Janet Bolitho, who described Vicky’s photos as a summary of Montague “at this moment in time in 2017”.

In response to the current renewal of the Montague Precinct, the event was titled “Jane’s Walk” after renowned American journalist and author on urban studies Jane Jacobs in an attempt to explore Open House 2017’s question: What would Jane do?

Anyone who has spent time in the Montague Precinct knows of its rich tapestry of industry, historic homes, street art and quirky businesses. Vicky’s photos captured the area’s soul and provided an important snapshot into the atmosphere that needs to be both preserved and harnessed in the future redevelopment of the precinct.
