Burst Water Main. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 10 April 1915
Burst Water Main. At an early hour on Tuesday morning the water-mainl on the east side of Crockford Street burst, and a large volume of water escaping with great force washed out of the macadam-surfaced roadway a large gap from the gutter almost to the tramline. A larage tree growing over, or very close to, the spot where the pipe was rent had all the soil swirled away from beneath it, and it toppled over, the crown of the foliage nearly reaching the tram-track. Persons passing along the thoroughfare were surprised at the novel spectacle of the pond and the overthrown tree in a busy street. One.possessor of a waggish mind enquired of a com panion, "Is that 'The Bent Tree'?" When the cavity was pumped dry by the M.M.B.W. men, who expedi tiously set about effecting the neces sary repairs, the hole much resem bled the sit of the explosion in a street of a bomb, as portrayed in the illustrated newspapers and by the cinematographs. This similarity was observed by a number of spectators.<...
