Look Up

Sometimes if you look up instead of straight ahead, you'll see something you've never really noticed before.

Google tells me that its the Henry Davis York building (formerly MLC building) http://www.sydneyarchitecture.com/cbd/cbd5-07.htm built in the Inter War Art Deco style. http://www.sydneyarchitecture.com/STYLES/STY-I11.htm
I'm afraid I don't know what the detail itself represents.

I agree with you — but I keep forgetting. :)

"Union is strength." I wonder what kind of company first built it. Sounds like it may have been a bank.

You are right! We should not walk always so hastedly with our eyes down: we miss so many worthwhile details around us!!
I hope you had a relaxing sunday, Ann!

It was built by MLC, drawing on similar designs for their other offices in Aus and NZ: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_Life_%26_Citizens_Assurance_Company_Building
