Situated in what must be one of the most well-preserved Art Deco interiors in Sydney, the old Bank of NSW building was designed by architect Bruce Dellit—responsible, too, for Hyde Park’s beloved Art Deco war memorial—and completed in 1940.

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.
