HOW things have changed?

Hat-tip to the good people at Yummy Cafe’s Facebook page for this one.

They posted up a video of aerial footage in the town dated from August 1990.

Initially it seems not much has changed in the town, but on closer examination you can see the old Russell Arcade is still there and so is the Allegro on the corner of Denny Street/The Mall.

It was obviously taken during the festival because the amusements are in Ivy Terrace.

Austin Stack Park is just a big brown space due to the redevelopment that was going on at the time.

See if you can see any more significant differences in the video below.

    AFAIK this was some years prior to 1990. If you look at the field on the other side of the road, it is actually the basin. In 1990 it was full of water.
