Prue's Story

My 84-year-old mother lived in Ivanhoe in the 50s when she was a medical student/medical officer at the Alfred Hospital. She tells us that in those days when she was late for a tute she would frequently drive at 80km per hour down Punt Rd in order to get there on time. I think it may have even been legal to travel at those speeds in the 50s. Certainly not possible these days.
