While meandering back from a quick restaurant lunch I notice these old arches. They look modern against some of the other buildings especially the one on the left but don't look completely out of place. This shot doesn't show it well but modern skyscrapers can be viewed above and through these arches. The lane is cobblestone and original. Most of the old buildings around this end of Melbourne (King and Lonsdale) where grain and produce warehouses and have been kept and restored. The restaurant I went to is half a grain store and the building on the left in this picture was also some type of store. It is a quaint area and it's not hard to imagine an earlier Melbourne with original buildings like these around.
