The city of Melbourne, Has quite grown since the great depression took a big hit on our city, and we'll go into details how it has, like the slums & red light district developing among the city.
Oddly, speaking of Slums, I spot our infamous slums that have recently developed in the city. Storyville, that sits across the river from Downtown.
A close up to the core area of Storyville, These buildings are mostly Adult clubs, and Adult stores. Storyville isn't a kid friendly atmosphere.
Storyville is the most crime ridden area of the city.
This doesn't mean kids live in the area, due to this side of the river is covered by Storyville High School, home of the "Storyville Roaring Tigers"
Now to travel across the Melbourne River, into a more friendly atmosphere, and a place with a lot of less crime, to North part of the Luna Park District, where we see the amusement park as seen to get a expansion!
Luna Park's new ferris wheel, The Luna Wheel, and then we see the main attraction of the expansion, the Luna-Cyclone, but with the Depression going on, the coaster and ferris wheel was a large risk to take, as the park is now having less money, could be foreclosed at any time.
Then again, downtown is doing a lot worse, as a lot of businesses has shut down. Sears Hardware Store has been bought out by the retailer, "Sears Roebuck & Company", and a few other larger named businesses opened to replace the foreclosed ones.
Now in South-Downtown District, is Melbourne High School, Home of the "Fighting Royal Knights of Melbourne"
Even though both high schools in town have major budget cuts, they remain on top of major competition against each other.
This about wraps up the great depression in a small nut-shell. Hopefully everything can leave this slummy state to the average normal state that we see of Melbourne.
