Summary Up till 1878, when the Victorian Railways took over, the suburban railways of Melbourne were run by the Hobson's Bay United Railway Company, Flinders Street Station existed as a small building beside the flourishing fish market. This later gave way to a frruit and vegetable market. When in 1900 the old market was demolished, the Government planned to build an impressive new railway terminus on the land. build in French Renaissance style and occupying a whole city block, it may have been impressive early in the century. Now though its dingy facade is no longer new or imposing, its well-known row of clocks still accurately proclaims the departure times of suburban trains
