(contact QldPics about this picture)

Drummond Street was once the main street in Clermont, but due to persistant flooding of Hoods Lagoon, the centre of town moved to higher ground. This image shows people standing on the bridge over the unusually long lagoon, looking towards the shops on Drummond Street around 1877.

This picture is also part of the Bonzle Bridges (open in new window) photo collection.
