Some photos from the 1950s of Melbourne
Two great pictures of Melbourne for your Friday afternoon courtesy of Arcade Gazette. The first picture of Flinders Street station appears to be taken at its 100 year anniversary. Its kind of reminiscent of the Magic Kingdom at Disneyworld/Disneyland.
The second was again taken in the 1950’s featuring a view of Bourke Street with Parliament in the background. I was surprised to see a double decker bus featured in this picture but it seems that they were quite popular all over Australia at that time period. Yet another adopted British icon.
