Love these classic shots of a packed house at North Melbourne. I wish I had seen them race at the track. I went to Arden St after the MGRA had moved to Olympic Park. My cousin played for North Melbourne in the VFL. I clearly remember the track was still around the outside of the playing oval at that time. The other photo shows a player using it for training.
Doug Scott – Yes I remember it well I was there two betting rings had to walk miles to park the crowd was tremendous.
Rookie rebel loved this track he could rail the whole way.
