This large block of only eight apartments stands dominantly on the corner.
It looks like it might not be such a cheap place buy into.
I turned right into Walsh Street. This looks like a main entrance but chimneys never sit at the front of a house of this vintage, surely? My guess is some land was sold off on what is now the side of this house that used to front Acland Street.
I turned left into Airlie Bank Lane. These are flats with carparking underneath. Why am I thinking mews? I don't even know what mews are really.
Airlie Bank Lane turns left and Dear oh dear, this is a very un-South Yarra like car. Google Street Views of the area are quite out of date, but this car was there when they were taken.
This one was somewhere along the way. Modern and somewhat brutalist and was not there when the Street View camera went past.
Now I am in The Righi with some fine Victorian here. The views from these two houses at the top of Airlie Street would be most impressive.
Because they look down Airlie Street, across the river to Richmond.
Rather late for geraniums. They face west and obviously get some night warmth from concrete. Yes, I checked that they were real. I was heading down Airlie Avenue towards the river.
Melbourne, boring and flat, it is said by Sydneysiders and ok, it is not as hilly as Sydney, it does have some.
The camera focus sadly was not on this glorious red. I can't even tell what it is.
At the bottom of Punt Road where it meets Clowes Street is this most splendiforous golden elm. It is a tree that pruners leave alone and don't cut off the lower branches.
I don't which is worse, the erupting telephone cable or a tee tree fence in South Yarra.
I am now trudging back up the hill along Walsh Street. Not every building has been restored and renovated to within an inch of its life. Oops, I am at the back of Melbourne Church of England Girls Grammar School. I put the camera away and tried to look purposeful. I didn't want anyone calling the police about a suspicious older man with a camera loitering around the back of the school.
An earlier South Yarra walk here with part two here.
