Monroe Station remains a landmark …
Even if it’s a shell of its former self.
|Aerial view in Summer 2013|
The good news is the meddlesome melaleuca forest that surrounded it has been cut down.
Natural vegetation has grown back in its place.
|Ground view now|
The bad news is that the building.
Well, in a nutshell, it looks like a disgrace.
|Ground view then|
Some old timers if they squint really hard they can still see Joe Lord’s old place.
That’s maleleuca in the background by the way.
A rehabilitated station would make the restoration complete.
