it was taken from about here. Note the same stobie pole. Only problem is google maps have not been updated since last century...

Could look a bit dated in 20 years :?

The more I look at it, the more I think you're spot-on here.

And in a wierd way, that makes me appreciate it a bit more :?

You'd have to try pretty hard to make Richmond Road look any worse, anyway.

I walked from Marion Rd to Grove Avenue in the drizzle yesterday - World Park was visible in the distance, & I was thinking how shabby Richmond Rd looks
in that area by comparison - in Grove Ave, a large rat casually walked in front of me & squeezed through the fence into ETSA Utilities land.

You're not the only one! Their branding is terrible, and the name conjures up thoughts of unpleasant odours.
