I wish they had never removed the fish market buildings. They look great. There is more on them at http://www.walkingmelbourne.com/building5_melbourne-fish-markets.html . For an explanation on its "eclectic" style, see http://www.walkingmelbourne.com/style_info.html?style=Eclectic

For more demolished Victorian-era buildings in Melbourne, see http://marvmelb.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/melbournes-wonderful-demolished.html

Alas .... never mind we still live in a wonderful, if architecturally dying city.

We do, we do,  The one that I feel the most for was the Colonial Mutual Trust building, I have seen the statue at Melbourne Uni and the blocks that are near the museum, but it does not do it justice.

Commentary and 3d views inside some historical Melbourne sites. While the images may be modern, the commentary tends to give history from the Victorian era.

This time, it's not just Melbourne and dates back to 1914. Current photos from all state capitals have been merged with photos from 1914 so you can see horse and cart with modern cars and dress and a mixture of old and current buildings.
