The inner suburbs of Melbourne are dotted with former dairies and stables dating from a time when family run companies produced dairy products for their immediate neighbourhood.
This building is the former Melbourne Butter Supply building in South Melbourne which given the size of the building must have served a much wider area than the few nearby streets as the smaller dairies would have done.
The building is not overly decorated but the stylised lettering on the company name is marvelous.
