These apartments in the old city (Ciudad Vieja) of Montevideo perhaps have seen better days. The upper floors look OK but the door tells a different story. No doubt it would have been fantastic in its day and we can see a hint of that with two of the four panels still surviving.
The left hand door still has its yacht and train but whatever was on the other side is gone.
In Melbourne Art Deco, Robin Grow, President of the Art Deco & Modernism Society, examines the rise, fall and resurgence of Art Deco in Melbourne from the 1930s to the present day. With contemporary images by David Thompson and a team of photographers, supported by archival material, Melbourne Art Deco offers an invaluable insight into history and current state of one of the city's most popular styles.
