So nice to see the old buildings...
I can imagine that this nice three story old Melbourne hotel with arched windows gets so little rent compared with the tall block building behind, but good on the people who did not let it get replaced. It makes the city so much more manageable to little people like me. In Sydney the builders union had a green ban on where they refused to work on any building sites that pulled down the old buildings around The Rocks - that's why we get to enjoy the history there, and the biggest things there are the cruise ships. I admire those people that stood up to the constant growth and development. I think the only sustainable growth is personal growth for good. Business can't keep growing.
