This is a lovely little Art Deco building at Essendon Airport. Three vertically arranged porthole windows punctuated with a small eyebrow ledge with another slightly larger rounded one above the door. Notice also the use of different coloured bricks to provide decoration around the entrance. Finally, it appears the brackets from a flagpole remain on the corner of the building but the flagpole is long gone.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
