Terraces, Peel Street Collingwood

Repost 2018:

Great set of #polychromebrick #MelbourneTerraces in #PeelStreetCollingwood. The pair of #shophouses have odd huge brackets, a wild huge pediment thing and what look like chimneys but arnt. Peel street has a number of ex-shops scattered down its length, perhaps once was it was almost an extension of Smith Street shopping, but possibly they were built c1890 just in time for the economic bust, and maybe never even got leased.

2021 update : in mid 2020, the developer who already bought the #club80 venue and the one next to it bought the right hand terrace house in my photo as well, and plans for the 8 level development show the main house kept, but the backyard becoming part of the new building.
