In 1936 the Christian Brothers opened their Highgate School at 375 Stirling St, Highgate.
The school has moved and the land sold to property developers who are about to build a six story apartment block.
While the Stirling St School frontage is being kept and will be turned into apartments, the rest of the school grounds will be covered with high-density living.
As a first step, a crane needed to be erected and that is what caught my eye from my balcony on Friday.
A quick trip to the site and some photos were taken.
The old cross on top of the school façade was nicely framed for a short while..
And there needs to be a crane to build the crane. The two, in mid-construction, provide some strong verticals when combined with the old school chimney.
During the evening the looming threat of this newly invading monster was visible from the balcony where I had first spotted its arrival.
