West Melbourne. One of the "Dudley Mansions."

A 'Dudley Mansion.' The kitchen is the front room, behind is the bedroom, which is papered with bills, salvaged from the tip. No blankets, but cleanly washed bags." - Barnett caption.

Dudley Flats was the popular name for the waste-grounds in West Melbourne where many of the city's homeless lived.
