Little Italy / Little Portugal
As you head west along College St the street starts to change from an Italian flavour to a Portuguese one and this typically Portuguese mural at Crawford St is a good indication of that changeover. It was installed in 1988 on the side of a building which was at the time a Portuguese community centre but which became a night club years ago. There is still a Portuguese presence with a dance club in the lower level and a few Portuguese offices but most of the building is now "The Mod Club". The tiles are still in pretty good shape after all these years!
