Mornington: Then & Now

I went for a stroll around Mornington with some Rose Series postcards (circa 1920s) yesterday, & compared the then & now.  This is what I found:

The Mornington Baths

The Mornington Pier

Fishermans Beach, the Esplanade

The Royal Hotel, the Esplanade

Kirkpatricks Hotel, the Esplanade

The Grand Hotel, Main Street

In summary..  Not a whole lot of change, given the time period I think!  I couldn’t get far enough away to take the picture of the Grand, as the original picture actually has grass in the foreground – so definitely a few changes here & there!  But still a lovely seaside town with great character.
