This is the last house in St Kilda to be still privately owned. Quite nice it is too in an understated manner. The owner tends the gardens personally and the house looks to be well maintained. I have had communication with the owner some time ago about outside advertising in St Kilda Road. It won't be a surprise to any of you that both he and I thought badly of the crude and cheap advertising.
Our friend Vik and I sat outdoors at a cafe in St Kilda Road having lunch one day and as she spent a good bit of her childhood as a St Kilda Road resident, I pressed her as to where the the Post Office was back then. Her memory of it was as hazy as mine. I had been there, but of the remaining old buildings in St Kilda Road, I could not work out which one it was. I remembered only the entrance.
I have looked carefully at every possible building trying to work out which one was the Post Office. I am fairly sure the last privately owned house in St Kilda Road was the Post Office. Correct me if you can.
