Abandoned Milk Bar
.

I first came across this corner milk bar in about 1995, and even back then it was derelict. Cigarette advertising in the window suggests it closed prior to 1990, or was in breach of legislation past that date. In mid 2007 posters advertising the launch of Westpac's Handyline phone banking service appeared in the window - quite strange considering they would have been printed around 1987! There are no obvious signs of anyone living there, at least comfortably... the electricity is disconnected, and an upstairs window is broken.

UPDATE: This building was restored and sold in mid 2009. It had been derelict for at least 14 years, possibly longer.
