Amalgamated Wireless Australia (AWA) was a household name from the 1930s to the 1950s as a broadcaster and manufacturer of radio receivers, record players and other electronic equipment. The head office building, completed just before world War II, has impressive face brick with projecting vertical ribs. Built to the height limit of the day (150 feet or 46 metres) it became the outstanding Sydney landmark when the lattice steel communications tower was added to the top. It was the tallest structure in Sydney for some decades. Parapet decorations featuring a Pegasus were chosen by sir Ernest Risk to reflect the work of Australia's great wireless enterprise.
