A good use for a church, in my opinion. It is part of the performance space for Chapel off Chapel in Malvern Road, Prahran. The former Uniting Church was was bought in 1980 by the Prahran City Council, now part of City of Stonnington. We have seen performances at the venue several times and always enjoyed them.
Two photos from Facebook. Does this one bring back some memories to watchers of Number 96? I think Joe Hasham, lowest line, made me gay, or at least nudged me along a bit. The teenaged Andrew so loved him. Funny, not my type at all now, if I even have one, but I have my memories.
Bit late with this one, yes?
The building is known as Swanston Square and the image is that of William Barak, the last Aboriginal elder and a spokesperson for the local Wurundjeri-willam clan.
Sometimes un-restored buildings can look more interesting.
Above the the roof of the same building can be seen the Mazda cat, an old advertisement for Mazda light bulbs. The ad has some council protection.
Some apartment detail at Prahran Central apartments.
Remember what the failed vertical gardens looked like back here? The small one inside my Prahran chiropractic clinic is a delight.
All over the better posh suburbs of Melbourne substantial houses in good condition on substantial blocks of land are being demolished to build expensive apartments. Our Federal, State and Local Councils espouse higher density populations, except it happening in already high density areas. City of Stonnington, how many demolitions and new apartment buildings have you approved of in the last five years? Ok, yes, some blame must be laid at the evil VCAT, a great friend of developers making mega profits. This one is for the chop, probably to be replaced by a very expensive block of apartments about five storeys high.
R reckons we eat less if we serve ourselves from the table, rather than being served a meal. It seems he is correct. Ham steaks are becoming hard to come by, but thankfully R did find some of the ultra processed, full of water and preservative, ham steaks. They are so nice with pineapple.
I emailed R with a recipe from Snoskred. The Thursday muffin tin meatballs were nice, but they did taste like a vegetarian frittata he makes for vego visitors, in spite of there being meat in them. Err, these two meals look so similar. We do have a varied diet, but carrots, peas and broccoli feature often, as does chips or mashed spuds.
