Woolloomooloo, corner shop

This former corner shop and residence is located on the corner of Forbes Street and Best Street, in the inner city suburb of Woolloomooloo. Along Forbes Street are a number of two storey terrace houses built in the same style.

  2. This building looks quite well preserved. Love the features beneath the two corner windows on the lower level.

    1. Parts of the street are blocked off to create pedestrian malls and it leads down to the bay, so it's quite a good one.

  5. I wonder if this building (a former corner shop and residence) was ever a Victorian-built pub. It has the perfect corner position, a terrific wrought iron balcony and wide awnings.

  7. Hi Jim,

    You've given us another beautiful blue sky. Isn’t it fun finding blues to share?

    Happy Blue Monday!

  8. Over here this would be called a flat iron building because the point at the front looks like the front of a flat iron. This structure is such a nice one and the paint job is perfect. You always show us the neatest things in and about your area.
