Beyond the Alley/GNC, Marina

Chestnut St, Marina

Here are a couple of shops in an Art Deco building in Chestnut Street, Marina. No doubt the shopfronts have been modified since the 1930s so all the deco beauty is above the awnings.

Firstly there are three windows adhering to the Rule of Three despite the fact that one sits across the midpoint of both shops. Each window has a beautiful decorative metal grill.

Then above each of the three windows the decoration is then further split into three vertical columns. Again the Rule of Three comes into play.

The four gaps on the façade above the windows each have a rectangular Art Deco panel. Again we can see the Rule of Three as these panels a divided into three horizontal section.
