Before gentrification in South Melbourne

from Wendy
Years ago the streets of many of Melbourne's suburbs were shabby and rather ordinary such as this part of South Melbourne where I used to paint. Back lanes, broken fences, small houses.  Well today, the houses are still small but are up-market, gentrified and the selling price might be a million dollars. Built in the 1890s perhaps but renovated so much they are almost unrecognizable with patios, backyard barbecues, neat pavings. No more dunny lanes.
