Block Arcade in Melbourne

My friend and I spent 3 days visiting Melbourne back in July on a photographic "expedition" and we decided to check out the city's many arcades and laneways.  This one, the Block, is my favourite for a variety of reasons:  the "mood" lighting, the fantastic architecture, the large tubs of live orchids gracing each shop entrance, the amazing mozaic flooring and - best of all - it is home to a delightful experience in Hopetoun's Tea Rooms that offers an ambience of the 1930's or 1940's and the most delectable cakes, gateaux and pavlovas -  no trip to Melbourne would be complete without a visit here!
