Remember in Sunday Selections I showed you how my doona cover was coming apart? We thought we would visit Waterfront City at Docklands to see if there might be something appropriate and cheap. The shop was shut.
But first we went to look at some classic cars at the Exhibition Buildings. It was a fully paid event, so the best I could do was peer over a fence at a delightful P5 Rover. Opposite the event is what is known as The Engine House, an old cable tram engine house that ceased to operate when the last cable tram line in Melbourne closed in 1940. It has had a variety of other public transport uses and I believe it's still owned by the government.
On the opposite corner is Royal Terrace, a row of ten houses built in 1854. They are holding up well.
Now this is more like Docklands.
It wasn't unpleasant there, as it often is if it is hot, cold or windy.
Is the purple hue a trick of the eyes? I don't know.
