Snapshot, East Melbourne

A snapshot from the side of the Eastern Hill Fire Station, built in the 1890s. I always like it when traditional classical architecture has additions of non classical imagery. Obviously this one is in keeping with the theme of fire fighters, though its juxtaposition with classical decorative detail almost makes one start to think of Ancient Roman armour. Perhaps this is deliberate, an indication of the long and proud heritage of the fire fighter!
