The recent opening of fashion shop Neuw has inspired this post, as I had already found a historical photo of their premises on Smith St (on the corner of Webb St), which was originally constructed in 1887 as the Union bank. Neuw has featured in Style Melbourne, Broadsheet and Fashion rebel. Here’s another view of the former Union bank building.
