Musings of a middle aged misfit.
And what is it? I need to know :-)
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
