Apparently Melbourne in SE Oz has a huge amount of Art Deco buildings. I know my grandmother's joint is in that style.

Here is a list off the top of my head of examples.

Hawthorn's old ground, Glenferrie Oval in inner eastern Melbourne.

One of the granstands at Caulfield racetrack Melbourne.

Another one at Flemington racetrack Melbourne.

Grandstand behind goals at Windy hill, Essendon's old ground.

You beat me to it Bob...

Glenferrie Oval, probably the best example of an art-deco stand you'll ever see... Currently rotting and being left to fall down of its own accord.

The US and other new world countries are undoubtedly leading in this field.

Some really nice examples, people.

Stade VÚlodorme, Marseille: (opened in 1937)

Maybe not really obvious but the frontage, which is still there, is art-deco.
