Interesting to see the wooden houses with tall chimneys in Yarraville back in those days. ( If you hadn't said a year, I would have guessed early 50s.   The area is very dofferent these days!.     ;))

Also to see the footy ground marked out for Athletics.   Most aths meetings were held in August September back then I think.  Seem to remember  - maybe just after footy season finished!     :D

On closer inspection, I think a couple of the tall 'chimneys' might belong to the old Newport power station . . . . and some of the 'chimneys are telephone poles!   ;D ;D

I am not as straight a 'line marker ' as the pros!!   ;)  And I now see I have missed a bit on his coat.   - concentrate on the face!  ;)

Quick question Rob.  Is that a beard or just some under exposure.  When I zoom in it looks a lot like some under exposure at that location, but remembering back to 1960 (yes I do remember that year quite well :))  there were some beards on young guys like this.  I'll concentrate on all the other areas first.

I wondered if it might be shadow cast by turned up collar or scarf - only on one side of his jaw.    :-\ :-\

Yes it is. I enlarged it and lightened it and the collar is quite clear.  I think the dark areas are something to do with either the original photo or the scan.
