this building is really, really really really good. they have demolished the back of it, and theres a property developer office out the front, and theyre building flats and other junk all around it, so i am not sure if they will keep the facade, but by god i hope they do. if this goes, it will be more than a crying shame. im not sure who this art deco delight is by, but it is really similiar to the now demolished(another disgusting act)emu brewery on mounts bay road(1936). that was by harold boas, so… my guess is this may be to. just such a nice building, the frieze along the top, the numbering, the geometric forms and proportioning is so monumental and imposing. soo good.
