I wonder how many of these old street lamp brackets are left around Melbourne? I have come across a couple of them.
The first pictures are of the old Malvern Fire Station, now and art gallery. Clearly fire engines were not the size they are now. Today's models would not come close to fitting through the doors. I do remember when this fire station was operational. It is a fine utility building. I doubt that the location of the lighting bracket is original.
This other lamp pictured is in the laneway next to Safeway in Balaclava. I can well imagine that it is an original location.
If you know of any others, I would be interested to hear.
