The grey building in the third photo was formerly the Flinders Street Ball and Welsh Department Store

Ball and Welsh opened an emporium at 180 Flinders Street which was designed by architects Reed Smart & Tappin and was completed in 1899 in an American Romanesque style. It was extended in 1911 with the purchase of the adjoining Commercial Travellers' Club. The store occupied around one third of the total block and stretched between Flinders Street and Flinders Lane.

The upscale department store company Georges Australia Ltd bought Ball & Welch in 1970, closing the stores in 1976 because of declining profits.[11][12]

The Flinders Street store was renovated as Flinders Fair shopping centre in the late 1970s, its façade (including the Commercial Travellers' Club frontage) were eventually incorporated into the Flindersgate carpark.

Thanks for that, it is a stunning building - consulting my notes I can share the following with you:

Previously the site was a large timber yard owned by James Wright, it was known as Carron's Yards.

This building opened on the 15th of August 1899 and the people who worked here worked very hard indeed - hours were 9am to 9pm for five days and 9am to 11pm on Saturdays.

'The ground floor is stocked with the small articles, such as ribbons, gloves, laces, trimmings, silks, and dress goods. The first floor consists of millinery and other showrooms and Manchester. The second floor contains carpets, linoleums, and furniture goods generally, and also the general offices of the firm. The third floor is occupied by fancy goods, china, glass, etc., with a commodious tea-room for the use of customers. The gentlemen are thoroughly catered for on the ground floor, apart from the ladies' department, with a separate entrance from Flinders Street. A large portion of the warehouse at Carlton will now be devoted to manufacturing, thus enabling the firm to keep pace more readily with their orders. The whole of the spacious floors in the new building, containing fixtures for each department, are well stocked with the latest and choicest season's goods, from London, Paris, and New York, and are to be added to continuously by each mail steamer arriving, thus maintaining the well-earned reputation the firm has so long enjoyed'.

They are going to restore it back to the way it was in your vintage pic. This will include demolishing two of the eight arched sections which were added to the original building.

I believe the building on the left will also lose its modern extension on top of the building.

Not quite the caliber of the above photos, but we had a lovely sunset the other night. Shot some suburban cranes.

Thanks for that, I have taken some pics of the construction and I for one am thankful for the addition - it always looks 'unfinished'

May I give you a tip?

Put a break in front of the image name so it appears BELOW the image and doesn't stretch across the screen. (click "quote" on this post to see how I've done it).

I do that for all my flickr content.

A fantastic tip - thanks I am extremely fussy and it annoyed the living daylights out me Years ago Flickr used to automatically place the details under the pic but after some update it went cray cray - Thanks again

I like how Brisbane and Melbourne Fendi showrooms are so different. It's good to see them mix things up in locations. The Sydney ones are third world.

MELBOURNE *Australia

32 blocks. Thanks for showing the many sides of Melbourne showing its amazing diversity.
Fantastic and Fascinating pics

You should do a collage of all the theatres. Each with a unique facade.

Keep up the good work! Don’t stop
