National Mean Street #1

Every frontage on Great Eastern Highway has a story. Kilometres of jaw dropping ugliness. Really like this one amongst the underage prostitution motels, cheap crap apartments and, apparently, indoor skydiving. Although would a relentless blue sky have killed them? Thx … Continue reading
