Glebe, incinerator

The former Glebe Incinerator is located at the end of Forsyth Street, in the inner west suburb of Glebe. It was designed by Walter Burley Griffin and built in 1933 in the art deco architecural style. It operated until 1949 and then the furnace and flue were demolished in 1952. The remaining part of the shed and chimney stack were restored and reinterpreted in 2006 and the building is now used as a community hall and function centre.

  2. It is so interesting to visit. I live in Perth, Ontario. A lot of our local spots are named with similar names. Glebe, Bondi, I love travelling virtually. Thanks for sharing!

  4. So good to see old buildings being restored for new uses instead of being torn down.

  8. This lovely art deco building is so much more suited to a community hall than an incinerator Don't you think Jim.
