The word MacRobertson in a cursive script painted near the top of the wall of an old factory or warehouse. Trundling along Johnston Street in Collingwood on my way home from lunch in Carlton today, this building on the corner of Gore Street caught my eye. It was the graffiti at first, but then I noticed the old MacRobertson logo above the central doors. I only remember their toffees, but from being in this group a while, I now know they pioneered lots of confectionery products that other companies (Allen's, I think?) swallowed up.
