Manchester Unity building, Melbourne. Australia.

This neo-gothic building was constructed in 1932 on what is now one of Melbourne’s busiest street corners. It is now home to Smile Solutions, one of Melbourne’s most exclusive (and expensive) dental services. This image is of the spire of the building, one of the most Gotham-esque looking features of Melbourne.
