This 1956 photo by Tony Banda shows two dapper chaps walking from Falconer Terrace at 36-50 Napier St, which was built in 1866-84. I thought of asking Nicole from Circa Vintage on Gertrude St to dress some models for me to recreate it, but I didn’t want to turn a simple post into a big production.

It’s as much about the longevity of the building as it is about the 50s fashion. If anyone has historical photos of Fitzroy and would like to seem them featured here, please contact me.
