This is a new sculpture at North Wharf. I rather like it but it also does something. You peer into eyehole and crank the handle. Inside a boring picture of an old building is illuminated. Also as you crank a light comes on at the base of the top part. Visually, good, operationally interesting, no.
One of Melbourne's many gold rush boom Victorian buildings that the developers did not get their hands on.
Emporium has finally opened in Melbourne, partly where the demolished Lonsdale House was. It was busy, with a very long queue to get into the new to us Japanese store Uniqlo. We were quite impressed with Emporium.
Can you feel sad when looking at smiling sunflowers?
A visitor. I couldn't work out where I took it.
But this makes it clear it was on our balcony.
I think this is in Little Collins Street. It looks quite old and it is an unusual stone for Melbourne. By its plainess, I suggest it is early Victorian.
We were queuing for a short time to enter Melbourne's new H&M store. It is very good and the clothes are not expensive. My only criticism is that the in store music is too loud. The vaulted ceiling of what was Melbourne's GPO. It is a long time since it was a post office. Now the post office in QV has closed, as has the main city one on the corner of Little Bourke Street. A new one has opened in Emporium, but we did not see it.
A bit of kitsch in Royal Arcade, the waving Queens and Pope.
