From 1856 - 1910 between Russell and Swanston Streets there was the Bourke Street Wax Works. A sensationalist, alluring yet horrific Wax figurine museum operated by phrenologist's. It was the "it" place to be with crowds constant and attractions ranging from the 'Chamber of Horrors' to sideshow vaudevillian entertainment.
