A pair of remnant abandoned late 19th century shops and shop-tops, although there’s probably folks squatting upstairs. Not long for the wrecking ball. Dulwich Hill.

Former Methodist church

Former Methodist church (1891). Extraordinary facade on an old church built of Sydney Sandstone salvaged from an inner city warehouse destroyed by fire the previous year, and transported to the site. The sandstone gargoyles, sculpted by stone mason Thomas Wran, are the only ones in all of Sydney - and probably Australia - depicting native plants and animals. Now a publicly owned local visual and performing arts workshop. Annandale.

The funereal urn

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 15/04/2022 - 9:13am in

The funereal urn as an architectural adornment was very fashionable during the late Victorian era. It’s usually seen in moulded terracotta. The folks back in 1880’s had a strange obsession with the afterlife and memento mori. Annandale.

“Model.House” c.1886. Substantial late Victorian era terrace house.  One problem. The Model didn’t catch on. Haven’t seen another one with a facade that ornately embellished anywhere else in the Inner West. Ostentatiousness in this part of town has never really been a thing. Newtown.

Redundant. Typical architectural adornments on 100+ year old Federation style houses, with colour TV antenna. But wait. There’s more. Solar panels are creeping in. Hurlstone Park.

T.H.Chapman, sawmaker, was on this site from 1887. Current Federation style factory survived being gutted by fire in 1936 and rebuilt. Punched out all kinds of saws for use in light industry into the late 1960’s, then left derelict before an extra floor was added in a 1990’s era apartment conversion. Annandale.
