Hotel Windsor

Hi V - This is the monument atop the portico of the Hotel Windsor in Spring Street Melbourne.
It pre-dates the Ritz and Savoy Hotels in London, Raffles in Singapore and The Plaza in New York.
It is the only surviving hotel of its type in Melbourne.
Long Live the "Duchess of Spring Street".  Cheers J.


  1. Quiteregal. Hope you have a Happy New Year.

  2. mARVELOUS mELBOUrne! Happy New Year Joe, healthy and happiness from NSW

  3. Great shot Joe. Have a wonderful 2012!

  4. There is nothing quite like the ambiance of a regal hotel. I wish you a wonderful new year Joe, and many more fabulous photographs :^)

  5. Such a regal Dame - she deserves a visit!
    All the best in 2012 Joe.

  6. We don't do facades like this anymore, Joe. We tend to have glitzy, tasteless, monstrosities.

    Having got that off my chest, may I wish you only good things for 2012. Laced with love and with laughter.
