‘DEMO’ – Wreckers shorthand for ‘Demolish’…
BEST VIEWED LARGE
On the weekend I had the pleasure of hooking up with my mate Daz (aka MaxHamish) for a spot of photography, which we had planned to do for awhile.
After a caffeine hit in Carlton we decided that although having no plan as such, that we would jump in the car and head ‘west’, hoping to find some ‘cool old buildings’ that might be nice to photograph. Well about 2k down the road we came across the Old Melbourne Brewing and Malting Co.(est.1883) better known as Carlton Brewery, and responsible for the famous Carlton Ale’s.
The facade it seemed was obviously being saved, probably given its very solid state and obvious history, heritage listed. However, it was the lovely derelict interior spaces that caught our eye and we wasted no time taking, in my case,100 or so shots. These are a couple of them, in diptych.
