Candid image taken at Block Arcade in the heart of Melbourne City,Australia.Christmas decorations everywhere and it was ironic that on the shop window it says ‘Sharing Joy’ but there was this old lady looking miserable sitting all by herself.

Information from the internet:
Block Arcade is a heritage shopping arcade experience in the centre of Melbourne but going back a hundred years it was the “place to be seen”.

The arcade which was erected between 1891 and 1893 was designed by architect David C. Askew whose brief was to produce something similar to the Galleria Vittoria in Milan. The result was one of Melbourne’s most richly decorated interior spaces, replete with mosaic tiled flooring, glass canopy, wrought iron and carved stone finishings. The exterior façade of the six storey office has near identical facades on Collins and Elizabeth Streets and is one of Australia’s best surviving examples of the Victorian Mannerist style.
