449-453 Banna Avenue, Griffith

449-453 Banna Avenue, GriffithGriffith owes its existence to irrigation. Like nearby, Leeton, the city was established as part of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) in the early part of the 20th Century.

Driving down the main street my eyes were drawn to this stepped roofline. Simple, perhaps even rustic, it didn't prepare me for the view at street level.

As in so many Australian shopping strips, the underneath the verandah is finished with decorated pressed tin. In this case, a simple deco pattern of lines and circles.
