76-78 Clarke St, South Melbourne

76-78 Clarke Street, South Melbourne

I found this small factory while out walking in South Melbourne yesterday. It looked a bit sad and vacant and I almost walked right on past until I noticed the rounded concrete porch above the door which continues as ledge above the frosted and guarded windows on the front of the building.

A closer inspection reveals that there are small dark bricks below the ledge at street level and cream bricks above the ledge stretching up to the roofline.

The side and rear of the building has been completed in cream brick with the roofline at the back has simple asymetrical stepping.

The bright yellow tiles around the entrance may even be original.
