Strathfield, council chambers

The Strathfield Council Chambers building is located along Homebush Road in the inner west suburb of Strathfield. It was designed by John Sulman and built in 1887 but has undergone many additions including first floor additions in 1922 and town hall in 1923, designed by Harry Chambers Kent. A war memorial to World War 1 of a globe of the world erected on a granite pillar sits at the front and casts a shadow on the wall in the mornings.

  2. Another beautiful building. You live in such a lovely place. Love the traditional clock up there. I saw so many of them when I was in England. We do not see so many of them over here. Like the paint choices. Nice. genie

  4. A grand public building that certainly holds a dramatic place in the streetscape! And the white certainly highlights the contrasting shadows! Great photo!

  6. I love visiting here for my tours and history lessons. It's nice since I'll probably never get to visit in real life. (Blogger doesn't like me today, so I'm borrowing Millie's id. http://edenhills.wordpress.com)
