Just a few photos from Melbourne's Bourke Street Mall.
This is the very nice David Jones building. There other DJ building is nearly directly across the mall. This was originally the old Coles store. I can remember eating in Coles Cafeteria once. The staff all wore nice uniforms and there was a dumb waiter for either the food, the dirty dishes or both.
A nice non matching pair. There is on old sign on the one on your left, Public Benefit Bootery.
The Royal Arcade entrance. RA has just had tidy up and it is now filled with natural light.
Myer has a very big frontage. Look at the wonderful windows that are now being used. They were all covered over before its major reno.
The other David Jones store, originally Buckley and Nunns. The name Buckley and Nunn is still there in kind of mosaic panels.
Barry Humphries is fond of mentioning the Leviathan Building. This is it on the corner of Bourke and Swanston Streets.
Across Swanston Street is this very ordinary building, ugly in fact. However at night by the use of clever lighting, it looks quite pretty and very blue. I have looked for a photo online, but I can't find one. I have seen one before.
