Summary

This postcard captures Melbourne at dusk. The view captures the Princes Gate Towers, which were demolished in 1997 to make way for Federation Square. They were partly occupied by the Gas and Fuel Corporation of Victoria, leading to the buildings also being known as "the Gas & Fuel Buildings".
