It is not everyday that you find a giant cross in the window display of a clothing  shop.  Apparently the shop has a “unique style with sophisticated quirk”.

And this Building display window has been converted into the seating area for about 5 customers for the Switchboard Cafe – one of the tiniest cafes in Melbourne with a small hole in the wall for coffee and food prep –  room for one,  under the stairwell of the Manchester Unity Building – where the old electrical switchboard was located.
