Gladstone Terrace (1886).

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 01/03/2022 - 8:04am in

Gladstone Terrace (1886). A row of now rare surviving solid Sydney Sandstone ‘one up, one down’ terrace houses. Only the stone facades and original balconies remain, as all of them now have über-lux extensions out the back. Sought after from the outset; opposite a leafy public park. Birchgrove.

“Defiance Terrace” c.1883.

“Defiance Terrace” c.1883. Not taking any of your shit since the 19th century. Rozelle.

Cat and Fiddle

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 26/02/2022 - 9:27am in

Cat and Fiddle Hotel (1930). Built during the Great Depression and opened as the Star Hotel, later changed its name to the “Cat”, as it’s always been known by locals in living memory. Once boasted a thriving live music scene in the 1980’s-90’s, and was the launch pad for some iconic Sydney alt-rock bands, but alas, no more. Those days have gone away. After languishing for many years, it’s gone from grunge to as gentrified-as-fuck. Balmain.

Former fire station (1914). Originally built as a confectionery factory, briefly became a fire station, then a warehouse, before being converted to offices in the 1980’s. Facade restored and interior recently stripped out and entirely rebuilt as seven über-luxe warehouse apartments. Annandale.

A pair of fairly outlandish late Victorian era free-standing villas, in a poor state of repair. Now used as multi-roomed boarding houses not far from the train station. Summer Hill.

A now entirely marooned late Victorian era villa c.1884 on a double block, with a modern extension, fencing and Juliet balconies. Similar late 19th century housing all around it has been demolished and replaced over the years, as très chic renovations only became popular in the late 1980’s. Lewisham.

Former Edwardian era butcher’s shop c.1908, with some intact original tasty animal motif tiles. Horrifying vegetarians for generations. Now a coffee shop. Stanmore.

Canterbury Olympic Ice

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 21/02/2022 - 9:04am in

Canterbury Olympic Ice Rink (1971). Built on the foundations of an earlier one that had fallen into disuse. Popular with figure skaters and ice hockey beserkers. Open to the public doing birthdays, weddings, parties, anything. There’s an Olympic sized swimming pool next door, and then some old field hockey pitches that have largely been overtaken by social soccer. Unsurprisingly, the only ice rink in the Inner West, in a country that has long seen winter sports as elitist. Canterbury.
