Anglesea Main Street 1967
Anglesea's shops fronted the Great Ocean Road until the old wooden bridge (via Murch Crescent) was replaced during 1968.
After this, a direct route (further south) serviced the new crossing over our tidal stream. A shopping centre car park was constructed over the original township thoroughfare.
The entrance and exit to this open space has been altered several times since the original design. Also (for better or worse) a nearby roundabout has been added to the main carriageway.
