hiddensydney The old Millers Point post office on the corner of Kent and Argyle Streets was built by the NSW government after pressure from the local community. Opened in 1900, it remained in use until the 90s #hiddensydney #millerspoint #city #harbour #postbox #letters #papers #post #office #red #bricks #victorian #federationstyle #architecture #street #change #transformation #development #historic #heritage #history #ilovesydney 2w

hiddensydney Completed in 1928 to provide new headquarters for the Commonwealth Bank, then owned by the Australian Government, this ten-storey building was constructed of steel and reinforced concrete and featured a distinctive terracotta and pink-granite Beaux Arts facade. But it was the extravagant neo-Classical style interior that really took people’s breath away. The exotic banking chamber of scagliola marble and plaster, with its ornate pressed-metal ceiling and giant columns, was one of the largest in the world, and continues to impress today #hiddensydney #city #cbd #commonwealthbank #CBA #bank #money #architecture #extravagant #interior #exotic #chamber #marble #plaster #ornate #columns #impress #historic #haritage #ilovesydney 1w

hiddensydney Located at Kings Square, St James' Church was designed by Francis Greenway. The Georgian-style structure was originally built by convict as a courthouse. Consecrated on February 11, 1824, it is one of Australia’s oldest churches. Numerous alterations have since been made, the latest being the addition of a children's chapel in 1930. Despite the additions and modifications, the has retained its strong architectural style. Closely linked to the Supreme Court alongside it and the Hyde Park Barracks opposite. The three buildings were planned in their positions as part of Governor Macquarie’s master plan for a civic centre that has today become Queen's Square. They are on the same axis and all use warm salmon-coloured sandstock bricks which were fired in the same kiln #hiddensydney #stjameschurch #city #cbd #stjameschurch #church #history #historic #heritage #convict #architecture #religion #worship #prayer #chapel #courthouse #georgian #axis #kiln #salmon #brick #ilovesydney 4d

hiddensydney When it comes to small bars, sydneysiders are now spoilt for choice. A mainstay in the revolution has been @thewildrover_ which opened its doors in 2012 after fighting a giant battle against paperwork. Its opening added to the transformation of Surry Hill's Foster St area, a hotspot where bars and restaurants have taken over former offices, clothing stores and buildings that sat empty for years. Touted as an Irish folk bar with a touch of New York chic, from the street it's easy to walk straight by and not even notice it. Hidden behind its giant door, you'll find a watering hole perfect for knocking back drinks and enjoying good times with friends #hiddensydney #surryhills #city #TheWildRover #bar #smallbar #drinks #wateringhole #friends #transformation #hotspot #Irish #NewYork #ilovesydney 18h
