    I loved seeing this piece when I was last out in Melbourne. It’s on Green St. in Richmond. The artists name is Hayden, and I got lucky enough to see him at work the day I was there.

    I sure hope his mural stays preserved. It’s a really fantastic piece.

    I wished they had’ve done it BEFORE they took out the old cable cash system!
    Man when I was a kid that was the only reason I behaved for mum as she dragged me through that place for hours – so I could pull the handle and send the cash whizzing up the wire to the cash office hanging up in the middle of the shop!
    (The things the generation after me missed!!! hardee hardee ha ha!! Nyer! > P lol)
    At least we can keep that big yellow tower & the clock! The best time marker to see if you were going to make your city appointment or not – cos the trains stuffed you about again!
    Chookas! X♥X

    The store was built in 1853 and named Dimelow and Gaylard before the colloquial name was adopted in 1904. That building was destroyed by fire in 1907 and the existing structure was designed by Melbourne architects H. W. & F. B. Tompkins. The clock tower was erected in 1910 and the building’s name changed again to Dimmeys Model Stores to reflect its high fashion status in working-class Richmond. In 2004, artist Hayden Dewar was commissioned to paint a series of murals representing the history of the store and Victoria along the Green Street facade.
