118 Greeves St, Fitzroy (Dispensary)

This building was originally established as the United Friendly Societies Dispensary by a number of prominent people operating in Fitzroy in the 1880s. It was built in 1884 and thanks to the Russian Cultural Society has recently been refurbished to restore the facade.

I haven’t conducted a lot of research on this, other than it is now known as the ‘The Russian House’ and is a location which celebrates Russian culture and advancement.
