Randwick, substation

The electricity substation No.341 is located on the corner of Canberra Street and Bundock Lane, in the eastern suburb of Randwick. It was designed by W.H. White for the Municipal Council of Sydney in 1930 in the Interwar Mediterranean architectural style. It resembles a house with decorative brickwork and a balcony.


  1. It reminds me somewhat of a couple of hydro stations here. Especially that big bay door.

  2. It goes to show. Even a functional facility can be made to look attractive.

    1. It's a shame they didn't seem to make much effort in later years. I have seen a few good ones built in recent years though.

  3. Cool - from the thumbnail I thought it was the front of a mosque and was wondering where it was. ha!
