Punt Road is the divide between home territory and 'the park'. When my children were small it was almost a daily ritual to visit the playground, first crossing at the lights. Imagine the excitement of a little boy when roadworks were commenced to widen this very busy road. The playground was forgotten as we sat (yes, sat) and watched the big machinery go about their work. It wasn't long before I found it necessary to visit the library to research the names and functions of these wonderful 'beasts'.
Nowadays, we still cross Punt Road – to support our favourite team, the Tigers!
