Trunk

 
An early Sunday morning view of the outdoor dining area of the enchanting Trunk restaurant in Melbourne.
The building was originally built in 1859 as a synagogue.
It then became a state school until 1892 and then became a child care facility for this slum and poor area of Melbourne.
Now that fabric has disappeared, and the premises has been operating as a restaurant since 1980.
And the food is brilliant!


meandering space
many odd shapes and profiles
many old secrets

I really like those umbrellas. And are those a huge pile of flowerpots in that cage to the left?
