Foreword: Back in 1996, I was contacted by Progress Leader about writing weekly articles on Boroondara history, which I had previously done as 'History Watch' in 1992/3 for the then Progress Press. It was always such fun, with the articles then as 'Reflections', 'Heritage' and 'Memory Lane', sometimes edited - with new headings, extra snippets, ideas, or photographs taken by Leader staff or from Boroondara libraries - then often followed with requests for more information about people, places and names. I must say that I really enjoyed the opportunity, and was very grateful to the many people involved with the newspaper over the years - like Steve Foley, Stuart Howie, Jackie Mackay, Brendan Gifney, Greg Best, Russell Robinson, Anne Styles, Wayne Buttner, and photos by Steve Tanner, Valeriu Campan and Renae Payne.
Some months ago I came upon copies of some of the articles, and thought that with additional pictures, and photographs by my husband Ian, we could produce a booklet which people - probably of our generation, or even international students - might enjoy, and we have recently received some encouragement from editors Scott Abrahams and Dimity Barber.
