A bold passion


The retail precint of Paddington tends to be other than subtle. It overflows with well credentialled, well paid, well endowed young people who live on the street and play loud music. End of grouch.

Tessarella House offers superb jewellery for the emboldened free spirit. Many of the other stores offer 'frocks' with insufficient material put together in a 'what-the-heck' style with price tags to make one blush.

In its defence, I feel the need to point out that these images were taken on a Wednesday at 7am and the few people on the street were hurrying up to the main drag to catch a bus.

I love your way with words as much as the photos ... the description of the frocks with sticker shock makes me smile.

Can an object be fairly unique? Probably not, but Paddington terrace houses seem to be fairly unique to me.

Interesting use of terraces originally intended as residences.

I wouldn't mind passing these shops on my way to the bus each morning.

I love window shopping in places like this. It's fun to see what's there. Your description made me envious, as Beirut is short on this sort of thing.
