neon books, originally uploaded by e m m a j a y.

I like neon! Some great signs to be seen all over Flickr, but here’s a link to the Neon Signs group.

(You’d have to read English to know this was a foreign language bookshop!)

Mmmmmmm, bookshop.

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.

    I was going to say maybe English was the foreign language. But the photo was taken in Melbourne, so I guess not. Unless we want to have a conversation about colonialism 😉

    Hey, I know that photo ;->

    This bookshop was started by a wealthy Englishman in the late 1930s as a way to assist the many European migrants that were settling in Melbourne.
    FLB now carry books in more than 125 different languages!

    Thanks for picking my photo . . .
    I will now blog about your blog on my blog :->

      That is so interesting! Thanks for giving some more information about the shop!

      I’ve just been looking at your blog; I know next to nothing about Melbourne, it looks amazing!
