#AscotLodge, #HoddleStreet, #EastMelbourne, 1930s but exact date and architect unknown. In the 2000s Scarfy used to sell footy scarves out the left ground floor window. Empty for a while, pending the horrifying redevelopment, which got a permit because this block didn’t actually have a heritage listing.
2021: It’s #StuartHallArchitect, 1940. And just seen that a second proposal that demolishes it completely has just been approved! I suppose I should be glad it’s complete demo not a tower sprouting out of a facade, which would haunt us forever.
