down Drewery Lane

Drewery Lane runs south between Little Lonsdale and Lonsdale streets in downtown Melbourne.  It continues south of Lonsdale as Caledonian Lane and I have posted previously about the street art that I saw in Caledonian Lane.   Although Drewery Lane is only one block long, three other alleys branch off of it, Drewery Place, Drewery Alley and Snider Lane.  This post is about the street art that I saw on all of these alleys.
