Down on Exhibition Street at the southern end was the location for another one of Melbourne’s many markets of the 1800’s.

 

This was the location for the Eastern Markets, which contained many stalls; this was where you would go to by your Lavender for washing days and to make the house smell beautiful.

 

Eastern Markets opened in December 1879 and remained as the people’s market until May 1960 when it was demolished to make way for the Southern Cross Hotel, which has since closed in 1995 and was demolished in 2000. 

 

Billed as luxury hotel costing £5,250,000, that provided "comfort and service without equal", the completed building was opened by the Australian Prime Minister Robert Menzies on 14 August 1962.

 

Lavender:

An enchanting meadow in the Provence country side with the soothing aroma of lavender, a herbal, earthy lavender with light floral and berry notes.
