Note:

This is the view from what was a butcher’s shop (now a hairdressing salon) on the south west corner of Powell and Alexandra Streets in South Yarra. Powell Street Gallery was later on the south east corner (the building with the green rectangular door on the right of the painting) and diagonally from the butcher’s shop was a pub (the building with the arched door on the left of the painting). In the early 1960s Shannon lived in a small house at 5 Davis Avenue before moving to 22 Lang Street around 1965.
