Sumptuous & Juicy Mc Donalds - Streamline Art Deco Melbourne Gem

This has to be one of the most stunning McDonalnds franchise stores in Australia! Located in Clifton Hill, Melbourne, it was originally designed as a hotel in 1937.

It stands out as a striking example of the period, the streamline curves are a dead give-away to its Modernist credentials. The more you look the sumptuous curves just keep on finding every possible surface to wrap around. It's one of those buildings that put's a smile on your face when you see it in person!
