      Yes it’s a shame how modern use tends to be more beige and hide the character of the buildings. A bit of appropriate painting would make it look much better!

    you were right about the Clifton Hill Maccas, but I think this is even sadder….nice work: I haven’t had a look here for a while, which is my loss. Is the ‘I smell blood….and Gore Street Fitzroy’ graffito still there?
