FORF19: #13 Ghost sign

Inside Melbourne's impressive art deco Manchester Unity Building which was completed in 1932. Heavy heritage protection applies so the old features and signs have been preserved alongside tasteful modernisation.

This is a filler, I just realised I'd missed a day of the challenge. No need to comment.

I like the stairs leading that invite us into this mysterious building.

@taffy @gilbertwood @onewing @merrelyn @jgpittenger It's a wonderfully preserved example of the art deco style, and has strong claims to a number of firsts in Melbourne, eg the first escalator. Never mind it only went to the first of eleven floors. The detailed art and woodwork throughout the public spaces are very interesting, albeit somewhat non-PC in places in regard to our aboriginal people. I found this piece which I found quite informative. https://architectureau.com/articles/manchester-unity-building/
