Smith Street is one of Melbourne’s oldest thoroughfares and it dates back to the 1800s. Today, some of the heritage buildings are remodelled on street level but the decorative detail of the upper floors have remained intact.
One of these buildings is the Hannaford’s Pianos & Organs building in Collingwood (Melbourne, Victoria). Now, walking through the street, I was very attracted to the the elaborate Art Nouveau design of the upper level. And look at those semi-circular windows!
It’s a pity that some of the facade are painted over.
A combination of the old, the new and graffiti.
