Buses and bridges - Raf's Story

One of my favourite memories of Punt Road is going to swimming lessons on the old green public transport buses. They used to have a strange configuration of square seats at the back. And I think they had a central island of bus seats as well. I always found it very intimidating because of course all the cool kids used to sit up the back of the bus.

I remember going over the bridge that crosses the Yarra. There’s a name on that bridge, I remember thinking, that politician who was really famous back then, now no-one has any idea who they are.
