The former Kent

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 26/06/2022 - 9:41am in

The former Kent Hotel (1865). So old, little is known of its early history, but apparently fell into decline post WWII. Closed as a pub in 1976. Later used as a film set, was a restaurant for a time, then became derelict before being restored & renovated as an über-lux private residence in the early 2000’s. Lower photo. The old keg room and cellar of hand-hewn Sydney Sandstone. Balmain.

Baxter’s Lodge (1940)

Baxter’s Lodge (1940), the University of Sydney. Looks a lot older than it is. The old Messenger’s Lodge built on the main drag west out of town in 1883 was demolished in 1939 and some of the Sydney Sandstone was salvaged and used to build this lodge on the same site. It was the home of the University Yeoman, George Baxter. Police were prohibited from entering campus, so Baxter was the official “enforcer”, breaking up student brawls etc and providing security for contentious meetings. He retired in 1956. Last resident was the Uni’s supervisor of electrical works, Ted Lockwood, who died in 1986. The building then became a variety of offices and meeting rooms, and at one stage housed the University’s prized video tape collection. Currently vacant. Camperdown.

Former confectionery factory (1923). Only the original brick facade survives. Built for The Walcot Pty Ltd, specialising in medicated sweets and knocking out gear like “Larynoids Chest and Throat Pastilles”. Also produced ‘name’ sweets, such as Lifesavers, under licence. Became an electrical engineer’s plant by the 1960’s. Derelict by the 1990’s. Factory now gone; facade acts as an entry to offices and a barrier wall to the apartments stacked in behind.  Annandale.
