Glen Waverley, Victoria

When I transferred the photo files from my little black camera to my big black computer box-thingie, the file names started with ‘img-1969’ and ended with ‘img-1982’.

Makes sense, I thought. This big, bulky edifice on Springvale Road might have been built in the late 1960s when a team called Waverley played in a comp called the VFA. And I wouldn’t be surprised if, by 1982 or thereabouts, Waverley’s days were numbered. (Did they ever play Division 1 in the VFA?)

Nowadays Central Reserve (South) is home of the Glen Waverley Hawks in the local eastern suburbs comp.

There aren’t many of these multi-level scoreboards anymore.
