Adelaide Electric Supply Co Ltd


Adelaide Electric Supply Co

I love this little art deco building, a power station for the former Adelaide Electric Supply Company.

The extreme stepping of the roofline is joyous and it is not surprising to find the the rule of three employed in the decoration above the window.

Then just to top it off a recessed panel taking up the lower part of the facade contains the company name, so long that it requires a second line.

Certainly worth a detour along Post Office Place.

  3. I am fairly certain this was demolished last year sadly.
