This watercolour painting from 2019 shows Victorian terrace houses against the city skyline of Melbourne looking north from Stead Street, South Melbourne. Many of the skyscrapers are still under construction, with cranes perched on top. Before the pandemic a property boom was in progress, with many new apartments and offices being built. Since 2020, much of this demand has evaporated, as Melbourne has been in lockdown for about 140 days in the past year.

Stead street is lined with old Victorian terrace houses. Many of these houses date back to the 19th century long before Melbourne was the bustling metropolis it is today. Behind the houses a group of trees obscures the middle ground in front of the tall buildings. A truck sits parked in front of the houses behind a leafless tree. A modern white hatchback, is parked on the opposite side facing the other direction. Another white hatch is parked in front of this car. Power lines are strung between poles above the truck.

This artwork is a classic blend of old and new. It incorporates the Victorian era, and the futuristic modern construction of the new skyscrapers. The vehicles represent the present time, waiting to rejoin the metropolis.
