Old Queens Parade warehouse

I’ve been going through a tonne of old photos tonight, and have found quite a few of abandoned places that I’d forgotten I even had.

One such place was this old warehouse on Queens Parade in North Fitzroy.  Mail was still being delivered through the mail flap on the front door, and had clearly been accumulating for some time.

I’d just tagged along with Maka who was scoping out a potential new place to paint.  It was small but had some interesting features – aside from the mail on the ground (I’m always fascinated by the human elements to abandoned places), there was a makeshift bar upstairs, a disused foozeball table, and a hanging hook above a hole in the floor(!).  Lots of good walls for painting, too.

The above photo was taken by my fellow street snapper Melissa Findley; you can see more of her photos from this location on her site under the ‘Street‘ section.

Interestingly, as I was finishing this post, my iTunes – which is currently on ‘random’ – decided to play Wu-Tang Killa Bees.  Not even making this up.
