Essendon Control Tower - Post 1956

The 'new' Essendon Control Tower is framed by an Ansett-ANA Viscount in this 1960s shot looking north.


The 'new' Essendon Tower shortly before it opened in 1956. This shot is taken from what is now Wirraway Rd looking slightly south of east.

The signpost has a sign pointing to 'Southern Airlines'.
