Repost this day 2019:
Truly appalling bit of modern signage completely dominating the original 1872 arched timber #VictorianShopfront in #BourkeHill. Was cream which was slightly better than the current dark grey. New #heritageguidelines coming up for the CBD day things like ‘signage should not dominate, be respectful, etc’, can’t wait. A very rare surviving Victorian shopfront in the CBD, it survived probably because it was a post office from 1899-1969. Found a @nationaltrustvic photo from 1975, and @cityofmelbournelibraries photos from 1984.
