Ghosts on the wall at 380 Montague Street

380 Montague Street, Albert Park

Jack Brabham, Juan Manuel Fangio and Paul Frere. They’re some pretty ace names to have signed on your garage wall, don’t you think! And there’s more too:

Not only is this double fronted Victorian one of Albert Park’s last opportunities to capture a residence of such pure potential, this remarkable property is made even more memorable by its accompanying c1891 stables – formerly part of the Morris Dairy, since 1974 a motoring enthusiast’s dream retreat. Winners of twelve Formula One world championships, including Fangio, Jack Brabham, Jackie Stewart and Alan Jones have visited and signed the walls of this evocative structure. Also adorning the walls are nineteen signatures of famous motoring identities including Tony Gaze, the first Australian Grand Prix driver, Stirling Moss, Gigi Villoresi, Piero Taruffi and Sandro Munari.

Yes, the stables/garage form part of a property currently for sale in Albert Park, Melbourne. There’s a very real chance, too, that this motorsport history will be lost forever and knocked over in the name of progress.

On the very remote chance you know any more about this building, please drop us a comment or two below.
