Chung Wah Cafe - on the building in Heffernan Lane which now houses the Wing Loong restaurant. It was extensively damaged inside by fire two weeks ago (note the blackened, glassless windows).

The Australian Mont de Piete.
This is tucked away in Byron Street, off Swan Street in Richmond (the building is, coincidentally, now a French bakery). I'd seen the bottom writing (under the graffiti), before but not noticed the writing across the top of the building. Mont de piete is a government-controlled pawnshop. Is it just my eyes, or does there appear to be an extra T in 'piete' in the top shot?

No doubt most people would think this old shed in the Docklands is an eyesore,
but I like it. Not sure what works they're doing there. I'm sure if they were going to knock it down
it would have been long gone by now.
Sunset + rain = lovely. Just behind the Mission to Seafarers.

The Sandridge Bridge. I love the way this original brickwork was left exposed.
The Eliza Tinsley Engineering sign remains on what is now
known as the Eliza Tinsley Building on Bourke Street.
Bricked in doorways on Barry Lane (these buildings front onto
Queen Street). The original brickwork is so old it's virtually crumbling.
That shadow of a demolished building still visible on the side
of the Shot Tower at Melbourne Central.
More bricked in doors/windows on what I'd say was once a warehouse.
I can't make out what the old sign says. This is the back of McDonald's
on the corner of Elizabeth and Therry Streets near Victoria Market.
The old Carlton Brewery on the corner of Bouverie and Victoria Streets,
the site of a major new development. Part of the building
already appears to have been demolished but I'm assuming
the imposing exterior will be retained because they've propped
it up with steel supports.
