Looking down Edward Street, Brisbane - 1969. Some of these buildings are still there now. - the red brick building with the balconies is now a backpackers' hostel.
Harry Telford's stables at Braeside near Mentone in Victoria, where Phar Lap was stabled after the move south. Bought on the wealth from Phar Lap's wins, Telford's luck turned with the champion's loss. When he died in 1960, Telford was once again poor. The stables, built originally by Arthur Syme, a doctor and trainer, were made of Canadian cedar and hygenically maintained. Sadly, the house was abandoned when the last family moved and the stables were burnt to the ground in a fire in 1982.
