Bare in mind most photos look to as though they have been taken in the late 1990's- Pre-boom

^^^

A building on William Street that was renovated in 2003 was still unrenovated in many of these pics so the majority are mainly 1998-2002. The Eastern CBD shot seem to be from 2003.

Does anyone have any other old photos of Melbourne Central, similar to this one?

(for some reason this old thread came up in a Google Search and seemed a good place to ask)

Probably not quite what your after City Thing since it's not really the shopping centre bit but I found these quite interesting nonetheless.


Melbourne Central (or Museum) Station under construction in the 1970s along Latrobe Street looking towards Elizabeth Street



Underground platforms not long after opening


^^
Both pics from From Department of Transport website


The Facade before the redevelopment by ARM architects in 2005

I think the old MC actually looks much nicer. They should have kept the old chain on the clock too
