Don't worry about that fabulous concrete verandah that I'm sheltering under, out of the strong Chinese sun. That's the 1933 building, a former slaughterhouse and one of the most amazing buildings in Shanghai and it can wait for another day. No, today's building is the industrial building across the road.
I don't know if it is still used for an industrial processing or, like the slaughterhouse, it has be adapted for another purpose.
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.
