Art Deco, Victorian Buildings – Melbourne City, Australia. (1)

The old Shamrock pub, now residential, is located in one of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs, Port Melbourne. A once very working class area connected to the Port areas of Melbourne City.

Most of the buildings in Port Melbourne were built in the early to mid 1900’s, some date back to the 1800’s, these buildings range from small ‘worker’s cottages’, to old churches, pubs, schools. The area is no longer working class, although remnants still remain. It has become a trendy area, probably overvalued as far as house prices, with small weather board worker’s cottages selling for more than $500,00.00 +! Most of the houses in the area are generally very small houses, that have retained the same size since they were built in the early 1900’s!. So thankfully development in Port Melbourne has been kept to a minimum. It is a charming area, with history of the old Melbourne City intact.
