Little Lon, Steampunk Melbourne
So I’ve been discovering ‘Little Lon’, an inner city area in Melbourne between Lonsdale and Latrobe streets, and Exhibition and Spring. It was a ‘slum area’ filled with brothels, opium dens, and ‘larrikins’. You can be sure it’ll make it into the novel, somehow. Here is Bennett’s Lane, which is just out of little Lon, I think.
Chinatown, a little way away.
