10. Streetwise, The Collective – GD

10. The Collective - GD

On February 23rd, 2014, we set off on a new tome travel of Simmone Howell’s ‘Girl Defective’.  Fortunately for us, Simmone had already mapped out the locations on Google Maps.  You can view this here.  This map, combined with a re-read and a very helpful list that Simmone kindly provided us with, allowed us to map out Girl Defective in photo form.  We are very happy to share it with you all.    


‘Try the collective. Streetwise, Inkerman Street. Ask for Granny… Streetwise had a shopfront, but they weren’t selling anything. The windows were lined with photographs of men under the sign that  said, Ugly Mugs, Name & Shame.’ pg 126 & 127

According to Simmone, a prostitutes collective did used to exist on this street corner. Most disappointingly, it didn’t survive the suburbanisation of St Kilda so I took a fan-freaking-tastic photo of  the street corner anyway. It’s so exciting, I almost can’t stand it.
