Notes: Considering that 36 years separate these two images not much has really changed. The church (upper right) is now red from white (it's also been a residential property); the full-length steps outside the Victorian Inn (which itself has had a colour-change, along with its neighbour) have had iron railings installed; and the Marsten House is no longer visible on the hill at the far end of the road.

Notes: There is a newer, more ornate canopy (c.2010) over the frontages of #248 and #250 Francis Street, as well as a new paint job for all the properties in this view; #230 (adjacent to #248) now has a striped awning over its front window; the Masonic Temple at #212 has lost its suspended, pavement-width canopy.

Notes: Four years after the previous image #230 has lost its striped awning in favour of a rooflift! Yes, the roof has been raised by a couple of feet (and extended to the rear), and a bigger window has been fitted at first floor level facing the street. Nothing of note to report otherwise.

Notes: I hadn't noticed the wreath on the door of Crockett Realty (#248) before. Both of these properties are now part of the Victorian Inn's conference centre facilities, hence the matching colour scheme.

Notes: I don't know if the parking space that Straker (James Mason) parked in belonged to #207 at the time of filming, but it certainly doesn't now.

Notes: Utility poles have either disappeared or changed position making the job of matching camera angles that much harder.

Notes: You can see the change in height of the roofline of #230 (the yellow building) in these two images.

Notes: The point where #230 (left) and #212 Francis Street (right) sit adjacent to each other has hardly changed.
