Vale, Melbourne Convention Centre

News today that the Melbourne Convention Centre (now known as the ‘former’ Melbourne Convention Centre) located on the corner of Flinders and Spencer Street is to be demolished. (Obituary, The Age)

Here are just some of the images I’ve captured there over the years.
