Fowlers Lane II


On the map that I've used for this project, this street is called Clubhouse Lane, running off North Terrace and joining Fowlers Lane to make an L-shape. However, there is no sign calling this street Clubhouse Lane and no other maps label it as such. More importantly, there is a Clubhouse Lane running off Hindley Street that does have a sign and is labelled in many other maps that I have since consulted. From this information, I am safely assuming that the whole L-shape is named Fowlers Lane.

Fowlers Lane was obviously named after D & J Fowler and the business that they held here.

little is right, in my opinion (re: her comment on another photo) - this is fantastic. It almost looks like a painting, or one of those collages by ... what's her name?? can't think... children's books, collages, one about a forest, one about the country becoming a town... Damn. Regardless, though - this is a great photo. Well done.
