Block Arcade, Melbourne

Block Arcade © Evelyn Howard 2010

My World is in black and white this week featuring a shot of Block Arcade in Melbourne (Australia). The arcade dates back to 1891. It has many shops, but I come here mainly to look at the interior space.

Visit My World for more photos.

So empty of people but full of lines and tons to see. I think I even see a mop on the right, evidence that people had been here.

Evelyn said...

@ Sadami : Yes, it was nearly 5 yesterday!

Very nice shot Evelyn! I am curious about the word "arcade". Where I'm at it's a place that kids hanng out to play video games.

I'm wondering if yours isn't more like a mall with lots of retail stores????

What a marvelous place! Would love to visit and spend some time there myself! Terrific capture, Evelyn! Enjoy your week!

I love this arcade.

Evelyn said...

@ N Joe: It's not an arcade for video games - I know what you mean. Block Arcade has lots of nice retail outlets and a few food shops. MOre like a mall but a small one, and the shoplots are also small.

Beautiful historical place. The decor is amazing.

I would be coming here to drool over the beauty of the interior as well - probably couldn't afford the jewellery and bags and such that is sold here anyway!

Love this photo! That ceiling is amazing. Great shot for black and white, Evelyn! I'm curious what it looks like in color though :-D

Ann said...

This is similar to the Robina mall I took on the Gold coast. Do you go to the Gold Coast?

Evelyn said...

@ Ann : Hi Ann, I went to the Gold Coast about 15 years ago... don't remember much of it unfortunately!
