Just over 12 months ago, 21 January 2013 to be exact, I hopped on my trusty blue bike and headed north out of the Melbourne CBD and along the Moonee Ponds Creek bike path. Of the four scoreboards I just happened to come across three were the same design. It was if the clubs had ordered a job lot from an engineering firm. I wondered if these distinctive scoreboards had had a previous life in some industrial setting. And they also seemed like little platforms you’d find beside a train track out in the middle of nowhere. Or along the Moonee Ponds Creek bike path.
The exception to the trio above was the scoreboard at the Westmeadows ground (if memory serves me correctly).
