Footpath Cafe on Collins Street ca. mid 1950s


Rose postcard P. 846 showing the cafe culture from mid 1950s



The Rose postcard photographer is outside the Oriental Hotel on Collins Street – Paris End.  It is autumn and we have a great day in Melbourne.  The building on the northern side, mostly behind the tree, is the Melbourne Club. It and the building to the left are still standing.  The Oriental Hotel is now part of Collins Place.
