1940s 59 Collins Street


PLEASE NOTE: This image is square, and may require special framing.

A photograph from the 1940s of 59 Collins Street. This charming view is of a period now long gone - contributing to the notion of "The Paris End" of Collins Street. The quaint building at 59 had been there since at least 1861.

The eastern end of Collins Street had attracted members of the medical profession from the earliest days of Melbourne, and eventually hundreds of the county's best dentists, doctors and other medical professionals had residences and rooms in the eastern end of Collins Street.
