There are two Carlton connections with this 1897 photograph of Bourke Street looking toward Parliament.
First, John Danks & Son hardware was Carlton champion Harry Guy's life long employer where he rose from office boy to head Danks' Sydney operations.
The site is probably where McEwans hardware store later stood.
Second, directly across the road is E. A. Petherick booksellers (with the Melbourne G.P.O. clock tower on left and an on-coming cable tram).
Edward Augustus Petherick founder of the book store was the older brother of Carlton's Julius Evan Petherick..
It seems that there were no parking problems 120 years ago.
