Some Town Halls from Melbourne:

Melbourne doesn't have a huge civic building thrown up in its centre, because it has, at times comprised forty or more "municipalities" with as little as twenty thousand people. Somehow they threw up these structures to house the mayors and the garbage-collectors. the best- if you ask me- were done in the nineteenth century. They have a "family resemblence" ...

Collingwood ...



about a Kilometre away, Fitzroy:



Hawthorn:



Camberwell:



Malvern:



North Melbourne:



Prahran ...



And poor old Richmond ...



then there's Melbourne itself ...
