Southside: less pretty bits

Less pretty...but I like them


A rusty old bath on the decaying verandah of
a Foote Street house


Cobblestones and corrugated iron


Roses and peeling paint

Southside: On the waterfront

Kerford Road pier


A bite?


Near Station Pier, Port Melbourne


Port Melbourne


A cruise ship at Station Pier

Southside: On the street

Beaconsfield Parade


This might have been Dorcas Street, South Melbourne


Albert Park


Albert Park


South Melbourne Town Hall

Opposite the Town Hall. I love the striped verandahs
and the window boxes.

This stretch of Clarendon Street has got to be one of the most
charming streetscapes in Melbourne.

(P.S. to be continued)

Signday (yes, I'm obsessed)

In the old days....no Sunday tram service on Park Street


Not sure if this vintage store is called The Suit Hospital
or if that was a previous tenant.


Albert Park


Also Albert Park


A double decker off Clarendon Street, South Melbourne. I can't make out
the first word of the top sign but then it says "weekly quarterly payments".
The bottom says "dry cleaners". That could have been another sign
 to the left of the window too.

More signs

Off Little Bourke Street near the GPO. I think this sign was for the old Money Order Office.


The former Sir Charles Hotham Hotel, corner Flinders and Spencer Streets

What the?

I spotted these rainbow clouds from the concourse at Southern Cross Station. Google (oh, how I love thee) tells me that it's
 a rare phenomenon called a circumhorizontal arc.

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign


Corner of Union Lane and Little Collins Street


Elizabeth Street. I've never noticed this one before. It caught my eye as I was backing up to take the shot below.


Newman's Chocolates? I love the use of the word 'removed' instead of moved and
 that they felt a permanent sign was necessary to tell everyone they've shifted shop.

Low

Look at those weird patchy, low hanging clouds. Taken Friday night after the deluge.
