On February 23rd, 2014, we set off on a new tome travel of Simmone Howell’s ‘Girl Defective’. Fortunately for us, Simmone had already mapped out the locations on Google Maps. You can view this here. This map, combined with a re-read and a very helpful list that Simmone kindly provided us with, allowed us to map out Girl Defective in photo form. We are very happy to share it with you all.
‘It was just Dad and me and Gully living in the flat above the shop in Blessington Street, St Kilda.’ – pg 2
When we ‘street viewed’ the marker that Simmone had placed on her GD map, we were taken to Blessington street but were unable to pinpoint exactly which building was meant to be the home of Skylark. We did wonder if it was more of a general guide than an exact location, however we are happy to report that Simmone had a very good idea of where the Wishing Well was located. We were informed that it was sometimes pictured on top of the Laundromat (1st picture) and sometimes above the clothing store (2nd picture). Rachel and I are both of the opinion that the Laundromat felt more like the home of the Martin family.
