I came across the gorgeous blog of Melbournienne Lucy Feagins. She has done a great job blogging Gertrude St. The beautiful photo of Amor y Locura above is hers. I find so few blogs that I really want to read these days, but this is one of them. It’s so what blogs should be like: journalism without the corruption. And with good photos. Good blogs need good photos. Free and ad-free. But hers even boasts hand-drawn maps to die for.
Apart from Gertrude St, it has much of interest to whatever remains of Abbotsford Blog’s readership after its sad neglect by me. For example, her posts on:
- Abbotsford’s Yello Diva (how to explain: just click on the link);
- Gertrude St’s Cottage Industries;
- the Gertrude St florist Mr Lincoln (move over Vasette);
- Abbotsford’s Mondo Trasho; and
- Abbotsford’s Studio Hacienda.
But then just about everything else is likely to be of interest.

Heeeey thanks for the link! Very nice of you! Lucy 🙂
Hey, Abbotsford blogger. I was just reading an oral history among residents of Collingwood /Abbotsford in the State Library the other day. Are you interested in a write-up for this blog sometime? And still happily remembering the grapes in the arbour, BTW
Thanks for the mention. Come by and say hello (51 Victoria Crescent). Yellow Diva
The Bird Man has got his liquor licence up and running nicely, and has a drinks and tapas thing happening of an evening. Such a great collection of small boutiques, breakfast, lunch and dinner spots and small galleries.
I see the word Tapas…trendy! Maybe you can reinvigorate this blog with something on Trippy Taco…actually, don't.
I agree, I am also a fan of lucy.
