I love walking Melbournes laneways. For those of you who do not know Melbourne is a bit of a gold rush city and much of its growth occurred when bullock trains dominated local transport. We therefore have quite wide streets laid out in a more or less NS/EW axis. the street were wide so that the bullock trains ould turn. These large streets are then interconnected by a series of small lanes and alleys that give a more human scale to the city.

Here is one lane (Brien) and a few shots I took a couple of weeks ago. All variations on a theme.

Thanks Happy. The city council has an active laneway arts program. This is the result of that program.
