Kodak’s Art Deco shopfront reconstructed!

OMG a restored #shopfront ! Built for #Kodak in #CollinsStreet near Swanston in 1935, designed by #OakleyAndParkes, it was notable for using #StainlessSteel in the #spandrels – as well as the shopfront. Looks pretty accurate, except maybe the curve is bigger, and doesn’t have the vertical framing. Don’t know if @thehourglass_australia got a heritage grant, but they should have ! Old colour photo is c1960 from @museumsvictoria, the earlier is 1948 from @library_vic
