Rather ironic if the aquarium is on the fish market site, though.
No, there were two fish markets. The first was "under the clocks", 1865-92. Then the second fish market was between Spencer and King Streets 1892-1959, with the Corporation Market across the railway tracks, wedged between the viaduct and Flinders Street. The fish market actually still exists, on a third site out on Footscray Road.

Just from reading about those games, I've never really got the appeal. I'd rather play one where you actually, you know, just play soccer rather than being the team manager.

I enjoy playing both. I find it just as fun, setting the training, signing new players, all the other manager related things, and then setting/changing tactics live in matches....its fun and frustrating.

Well, the aquarium's on the... *thinks* south-east corner, kinda between the railway overpass beside Flinders st, King's way, and the Yarra. Sounds like it might be on the site of the Corporation market?

Hm, maybe it's across the road from the Fish Market?

Now I'm going to have to go down and have a look at the bloody thing, aren't I!

See, I think I'd prefer to manage the sort of things you get to manage in SimCity or Railroad Tycoon ...

I always played with disasters off and built the most meticulous cities, but I must admit to sometimes saving the city then going nuts with disasters before closing without saving and reloading it all safe and well.

Sounds like I might come down to join you for lunch one day next week then.

(I've now got a few weeks to kill and no idea what to do with my time!)

I would guess you're in for even more tram/train spotting/market identification...?

I've had quite enough of markets! But I'll be out there with the camera hunting trains and trams, for sure. I'd like to find more interesting things to photograph too. Landscapes and stuff. Definitely one of those times when I really wish I could drive.
