The Junction Hotel was a St Kilda icon up until its demolition in the early 1970s. (1890s) From the 1840s to the 1890s saw a transformation of the landscape from natural to urban. The establishment and rebuilding of the Junction Hotel is a good illustration of this change. This photograph shows a rebuilt Junction Hotel, larger and grander than its processor in conjunction with the new transport technology of the time, a cable tram, running down High Street and Barkley Street on the left.
