This is Chatsbury (1939), an eclectic block of flats at 6 Ithaca Road, Elizabeth Bay in Sydney. It really does have a bit of everything. A partially castellated roofline, small semi-circular balconies, curved wings at each end and rectangular sections stepping back into the block allow the creation of a wonderful Art Deco entrance.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
