Betta Meats

I've always had a soft spot for this building. Not at all glamorous with its faded lace curtains and old tiles. It's no longer a butcher's shop but is now one of the coolest bars in Newtown. I love that the new owners didn't change the façade - they even left the pickle jars in the window.

The Cake

Adorned with vases of roses and lion heads! I decided not to draw all the air-conditioners and signage on this one... didn't want to ruin all the fab Victorian fancy bits. I call this one The Cake.

This unusual building on King Street has always caught my eye. Not sure if there are windows upstairs or not. Can people see out? Is it one big box? I've never been too sure.

Once a local Hoyts, but hasn't been used as a cinema since the late 50s - only the façade has remained. This building really shines on King Street on a sunny day.

In reality this building has holes in the brick work and is rusty and neglected. I thought it could do with a a bit of a makeover. I love the round brick detail.

The Marie-Louise Salon on Enmore Road was loved by locals. When you walk through the pink salon door these days, you find yourself in a Turkish restaurant! I love that they kept the tiled façade. To get a feel for Marie-Louise in her glory days - go to the link below.

I've been told that this was once Brennan's Department Store. Fondly referred to by some as The Wedge. A spectacular building - the local star of a lot of images of King Street.
