St Kilda Buildings

Across the street from Luna Park was the Palais Theatre where live productions were still held. A facelift was underway while a sea breeze drifted in off Port Phillip Bay.  Years earlier when I’d visited Melbourne, the building had been white.

Another building that recently had a facelift was the George Hotel. Located in St Kilda’s shopping area, the paint had peeled giving the building an archaic elegance that some locals preferred to the new paint job.
