Handsome Bank in Clarendon Street

Very nice building in #ClarendonStreetSouthMelbourne, which was clearly a bank. Heritage studies in this area are old and so individual places like this havnt been researched, but three minutes on Trove and I found it ! Built for the Bank of Victoria in 1883, architect WS Law, and described as ‘one of the handsomest new buildings in the city of South Melbourne’. WS Law is one of my faves, did some very elaborate stuff, but was quite restrained for this bank. Ps Excited that my new Iphone 11 has a wide angle lens, so I can get past the pesky cars, and then just straighten it up a bit !
