43 Brisbane Street, Sydney

I worked in 43 Brisbane Street, Sydney about 25 years ago. I loved that building so much. The interior is also classic art deco. There is a sweeping staircase inside the front door. The upstairs boardroom was all wood panelled, just lovely. 

I’m not sure if it has been changed or renovated inside since that time. It’s the only thing I loved about the job, working in that building. It was a pretty seedy area back then and the job sucked badly.

You sent this note in April but it fell through the cracks, alas. Thanks for the memories!

Here is the building, BTW, folks — link to original posts here and here.

Interior, ANZAC War Memorial, Sydney, Australiaby Chris&Steve
A few of the 120,000 gold stars found on the roof, one for each of New South Wales’ WWI military volunteers.
From an article in the Sydney Morning Herald:

[Greg Read, the memorial’s manager, as of 2004] is also the custodian of the 120,000 stars in the Dome of Stars, one for each of the 120,000 men from NSW who volunteered to serve in World War I, most of whom either died or were wounded. “There are not quite 120,000 stars,” said Read, “because about a dozen of them have fallen out, but I’ve got them in my desk.” Presumably they will be returned to the dome during the $2.5 million restoration the State Government will fund during the next five years.)

And with this I’m done with pics of the memorial and possibly done posting pics of Sydney, for now, unless go find some Harbour Bridge pics, which I may be obliged to.
