For long-lasting, dapper teeth…

The Manchester Unity Building in Melbourne, Victoria, is a wonderful example of 1930s architecture, the sort of thing you’d see in a Hercule Poirot movie.

It was built in 1932: “The tallest building in Melbourne and built in the modern commercial Gothic style, the Manchester Unity Building was described by the Melbourne Age as a ‘Wonder Building’, with ‘every modern convenience for tenants and their clients’. It was far ahead of its time, in terms of both aesthetic splendour and technological sophistication.”

Leanne Cole has a wonderful set of photos of the boardroom of the building, including this one of two bulky leather chairs beside a decorative fireplace.

I’m very impressed. Maybe it’s a guy thing, but those luxurious, square lines are just beckoning me to relax with a good, musty old copy of Biggles or a broadsheet newspaper.

Almost makes me want to take up pipe smoking.

Take a look around the building’s website for some virtual tours and information on what must surely be the very best Dentistry in all the world complete with authentic period music!!

And for the kids…

Holey Moley!
