  1. Lovely. The style is much like park buildings here built in the same time period. So nice.

  2. I like pavilions like this which appear scattered through our city parks, Jim. Especially when made from sandstone.

  3. The sandstone pavilions are beautiful and particularly suited to Sydney. Especially in places like the Botanic Gardens where you also see naturally exposed sandstone.

  4. I like pavilions but often times I found it always abandoned. Good thing this one is well kept. ^_^

  5. A sturdy construction built to last. It's about the size of some of the "studio" apartments they build nowadays.
