I should change my blog name to Signs in Melbourne...

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).

Pawn on Swan

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?

Something press

I've walked along Tattersalls Lane in the CBD many a time but never looked up at the right moment to see this.
Anyone know what the top bit used to say?

Here comes the rain

Looking west from my office on the 47th floor yesterday afternoon.
The rain skirted the city though. (Taken on my phone.)

Last rays

Lovely light in the city last night as I walked home
