Our November Melbourne cardiParty was a wonderful day trip to Sale, with a trip to the historical Sale Water Tower (designed by John Grainger), lunch at an impeccably restored pub called the Criterion (built circa 1865) and finally a river cruise to check out the swing bridge (also designed by Grainger).
Did we capture all of this in audio form? No- you kind of had to be there.
But we did get the wonderful tour and talk, courtesy of Sale Historical Society member Michelle Page-Cook and local Historian Peter Synan OAM. How a township got is water has never been so interesting!
