Amazing, I had no idea Melbourne had such an incredible skyline and that its so dense. Some of those photos, especially one of the first ones of the Austere Lounge sign with everyone walking in the alley, were absolutey jaw droppingly good.

Step back in time with this video - Channel 10's Eyewitness News in 1980 featured some classic shots of the skyline and city life in its legendary news open, modeled on Philadelphia's WPVI. You stay classy, Melbourne! There is more of this TV stuff here.

Woah, that's exactly like a building in Sydney. I guess the architect got paid twice. :p

I have some pictures of it in my Sydney thread.

Also Melbourne has a very interesting Chicago like vibe going on. Awesome city.

Manchester Unity (above) & the Grace Building (Sydney) were both nods to the Tribune Tower in Chicago.
