Victorian Tall Thin frontage, modernised 1930.

Hadn’t really noticed this one before, in Elizabeth Street up from Collins, turns out to be a super narrow Victorian thing that was done over in early 1930 for Ackman’s Furniture (see the A’s up top ?); their main store was in Smith Street at what’s now the Woolworths facade. The redesign was by #GawlerAndDrummond. In the 20s it was the Thistle Tearoom, and then in 1938 Suttons Music moved in. And it’s #CranbourneMusic now ! Looks like it’s one of the handful of city buildings still empty above the ground floor.
