Batman Records in 1985 in a nice ancient terrace in Swanston Street

Remember Batman Records ? This is at 215 Swanston St when it was one of three city stores, photo taken as part of the 1985 Central City Heritage Review. A great place to get your second hand vinyl, or rent a record, take home an tape record ! Started life as the Batman Book Club in 1934, expanded into records in 1947, last shop closed 2003 when they went online. And just discovered I had a photo of it taken six months ago; looked much better before, with an early shopfront and nice colour scheme – I think that’s some terrible textured render over everything, maybe they were trying to make it look antique or something.
