MORNING IN BANK PLACE

Bank Place is a street in Melbourne, Victoria. It is a short, narrow laneway, running south from Little Collins Street between Queen Street and William Street in the central business district of Melbourne. Located in the heart of the financial sector, Bank Place (which incorporates several smaller lanes, such as Mitre Lane) is an oasis of heritage pre-war buildings dating from the 1860s through to the 1920s.

Looking north, a vista is framed by Normanby Chambers. The lane also includes several ornate heritage lamp posts and bluestone alleys. It is home to several bars and cafes which serve many of the nearby office workers. Many of the taller old buildings have been converted into loft style apartments.

  2. it seems quiet when you were out taking this shot, but I imagine it can get quite noisy when full of people!
