Out and about in St Kilda #11

I have no idea why this hair salon has these figures on its roof, but they have been there a long time. Recently two were stolen but then recovered after being dumped in the St Kilda Botanical Gardens. The roof is now alert, alarmed and cammed. I don't think the cropped sign says Hash and Luxury, but it is St Kilda after all, so who knows. Hint, they are much clearer if you click on them.


  1. One of my first memories of coming to Melbourne as a kid was this shop. I do enjoy everything about Acland Street though and I should really try and spend more time in and around St. Kilda now that the weather is getting better.

  2. Such chirpy, cheery creations!

    Utterly preposterous, that hairdresser.

  4. How many years ago your reckon Kezza?

    Sure are Jayne.

    Why so Reuben?

    Because it says so in this really old, dusty book that I recite out loud.

    Also, I'd rather just cut my hair myself; so all hairdressers are preposterous in my view.

  6. Andrew, I really couldn't be certain it could be anywhere from ten to maybe fifteen years ago now since I first set foot in Acland Street, would they have been there that long?

  7. Cut your own Reuben...hmmm.

    Probably that long Kezza. I can't remember when they were not there.
