Last Sunday we took a walk along Queensberry Street.
What is this thing called? MMTB, Melbourne and Metropolitan Tramways Board. Maybe an electric substation, maybe an old cable tram engine/winding house. I don't think it is used for either purpose now. Probably apartments.
State Primary School number 2365, year 188? I don't think it is now a school. Probably apartments.
An interesting bit of modern architecture in the background. Probably apartments.
Quite a conventional University of Melbourne building, but more interesting modern architecture next to it. Probably apartments.
How useful it was in London and Paris to have street names on buildings. You knew exactly where to look. There are still some remaining buildings within the Melbourne environs that have street names on them, with useful information such as street numbers. An old pub, not apartments per se, but backpacker accommodation.
This rather hit us in the eye. It is on the site of what was Carlton and United Breweries, a bomb site for more than a decade. I think it is the recently completed very energy efficient office building built by the shy and retiring developer company Grollo. But I could be wrong. Perhaps it is apartments.
We were standing at the tram stop to go back into town and R pointed at this tyre service company. Do you recall what it was, R asked me. I thought for a minute and I did remember, although it took two days for the name to come to me. R could not remember the name. If you are gay or maybe not even if you are gay, and were around in 1980, do you know what it was and what is was called? Corner of Queensberry and Swanston Streets, Carlton. I don't think googlies will help you. I only found two links and both referred to a person who worked there and who had died.
