Martin Place, Reserve Bank of Australia building and Australian Provincial Assurance building

The Reserve Bank of Australia building and the Australian Provincial Assurance building are located along Martin Place. The Reserve Bank of Australia building is a 22-storey building between Macquarie Street and Phillip Street built in 1964 in the Post War International architectural style. It houses the headquarters of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Australia's central bank and a money museum. The Australian Provincial Assurance building, formerly the Overseas Union Bank, is a 14-storey building between Phillip Street and Elizabeth Street built in 1936 in the art-deco architectural style. This view is from the top of the State Savings Bank building on the opposite side of Martin Place, looking east.


  1. You must have been very high up to take those photos.

    1. Yes, Fun60. It was the roof of a ten storey building.

  2. Two periods sides by side,but I definitely go with the older one...love the art deco style. The new one towers over the old, but the old towers over the old in beauty.

  3. Great looking buildings with the two periods -- as Genie wrote -- side by side!! I like the older one best, too. Hope ;you have a great week, Jim!! Thanks as always for sharing a look at your world!!

  4. Wonderful 'bird eye view' angle and great composition!

    Happy Week to you,

  5. I must have a word to them about my interest rate Jim.

  6. quite a nice angle

    have a good Tuesday

    much love...

  7. Love the building in the foreground. The more I look at art deco design, the more I am drawn to the streamline moderne and machine style branches of the movement. This is a perfect example of a place where a camera attached to a drone could provide some spectacular images of the details. Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed day.

  8. I love to go to places that afford views like this one. I bet Sydney has a lot of interesting viewpoints.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
