Colonial Bank / Rechabites / Flatiron

Repost this day 2018:

One of #victorianmelbourne’s #flatiron buildings, a branch of the #ColonialBankofAustralasia, built at the height of the #landboom in 1889, designed by the prolific firm #SmithandJohnson. Became a home for the #IndependentOrderofRechabites in 1919, then just offices on 1979. Great bldg, opp the vicmarkets, but a bit lost across the huge intersection.
