Mount Beauty in 1964

Mt Beauty, Victoria, Australia circa 1964. No Tawonga South to speak of, snow on the mountains. Can't make out the airstrip. Other than that it hasn't changed much in over forty years. I remember that the street lights were turned off at about midnight and the shops shut on Wednesday afternoon but stayed open all day Saturday. There was one copper (god knows why it has five now) and next to the SEC tobacco was king.
