I don't know when Ian left Melbourne for the bright lights of NYC, but I thought he might like to see some photos of Commercial Road in Prahran/South Yarra.
The orange clothed building is the one where the scaffolding fell down. It is so out of proportion to rest of the street. What is painted green is the old Club Evolution and various shops along the way. Club Evolution for straights across the street from the very gay Market was problematic. Only Pabs Furniture on the corner of Porter Street is not painted green. Oh, and yes, that place in Porter Street is still there. No doubt what replaces the green buildings will be similar to the one shrouded in orange.
While it is a nice building, I blame the evil VCAT for allowing it to be built, as it is totally out of scale with the buildings next to it.
Cafe 151 closed down and briefly re-opened as Rae's Cafe. No, not you Rae, or at least I don't think so. Cafe 151 was fantastic in its heyday, but we all moved on. Next door is Pricillas's, formerly known as Diva. I think it does quite well.
