Sketching Brunswick Street, Fitzroy: eating and drawing our way to Fitz, Roy and Polly

by | Nov 14, 2020 | All posts, Drawing Brunswick Street

Fitzroy Library Exhibition 13 Nov 2020 to 31 Jan 2021:  Display Case 9

There is no end to eateries in Brunswick Street, but not many of them have an open fireplace like the Fitz to tempt cold sketchers on a rainy Melbourne morning. Opposite was, at one stage (sadly now gone) Attaboy Roy. It took us a while to realise we were drawing “Fitz – Roy”. The building that housed Brown and Scott’s Drapery in 1905 is now Polly Bar.
