Fading Victoria


Fading Victoria

While the outer suburbs of Victoria grow, farms and old homes are slowly disappearing, Landscapes changed forever.
Residents are being forced to move as developers move in.

“Where will I go?” Marilyn asked, she is just one of the residents faced with “The forced move”.
She has lived here for over 40 with her husband, a place they called home, he has since passed leaving her with so many fond memories of the life they built on this farm.

I have visited her over the last 10 years and have seen many changes, her once beautiful Green view is still Green although appears with the big letters “BP”.

It’s been a few months since I have seen or spoken to Marilyn, when i finally got a hold of her, she told me that she only has a month or so to live, 84 years young, a chain smoker, so not a bad run I think.

In a way I am happy that she will not need to move and be able to live out the rest of her life.

A place she called home.
