this the harper’s buildings in hay st perth, near the corner of King st. it is absoultely astonishing, and another example of how thoroughly rewarding it is to look up in the city. a crying shame all these upper floor gems are just going to waste, espesh all the old cinemas! this for my money, is probably my favourite art deco building in perth, the way its translated into brick, and the detailing, use of colour and banding is just perfection. the geometry, framing and proportions are all just right. gorgeous. go stare at it. i did for like an hour, so rewarding. buy a coffee at cbd cafe and go for it! 1937, by Reginald Summerhayes. wikid sticks.
