Sketching Brunswick Street, Fitzroy: signs of the times, cancellations, click and collect, black lives matter

by | Nov 14, 2020

Fitzroy Library Exhibition 13 Nov 2020 to 31 Jan 2021:  Display Case 12

Walking down Brunswick Street from Alexandra Parade (still in my 5km limit), I tried to spot signs specific to Melbourne in 2020. Situations we could never have imagined – such as long postponed acts at the Evelyn Hotel, or closed shops with instructions on click and collect. The Black Lives Matter posters on the walls of the fire brigade credit union stayed long enough for me to capture. A few days later they were gone, showing just how important it is to record these moments in history.
