There are still quite a few of these lamps left in Collins Street. I am assuming they are left and not new. The shade was so filthy, I could not tell if they were gas or not, but as it was the middle of day, I guess so. The light they give off is very insufficient for modern times but I am pleased they are still there.
While some of Collins Street is crap, there are still many nice buildings in the streetscape. For those not in Melbourne, we have a term, Collins Street Cocky. It means a rich farmer. Collins Street is, or was, a street with many private doctor's surgeries.
