High Victorian on Fitzroy Street

Original post 8 April 2020

Anywhere else and this interesting #VictorianShop would be a stand out, but next to the other big things at the corner of #FitzroyStreetStKilda and Grey Street, and with a huge sign on top, it gets overlooked. With those exaggerated #quoins, chunky arcades, and some #castiron I’ve never see before, the style is very #highvictorian, so prob 1888-1891, other than that I don’t know much. It was a #confectioners in the 40s if I’m guessing the old postcard correctly, might have been one originally; and upstairs is for rent right now !
