Here I am down in Lower Riley Street, just before in ends close to the Domain Parking Station. Yet another awesome view of Centrepoint Tower. But that is not my main reason for being here. What I want to show you is yet another old sign from a previous age.
Built in 1904, this old building was once known as Julip House, and is on the corner of Riley Street and Busby Lane. Busby was the engineer who constructed Sydney's first water supply. Brandt Bros. was established in 1878, and still exists - in an emaciated form over in Devonshire Street. Brandt Bros merged part of its operations with TW Sands & Co in Melbourne which has everything for the old kero lamp devotee!
336 Pitt Street is just north of Liverpool Street, but is now a glass and faux-marble modern abomination which has a Chinese restaurant on the ground floor.
