This fabulous building in Carlisle Street, Balaclava is a former branch of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. I remember it in recent times as a take-away chicken joint but last year it was remodelled as a restaurant/bar, Ilona Staller, by Grant Amon Architects bringing a contemporary Art Deco interpretation to the old Art Deco bank.

As we drew level, we could see it was a church, the Templo Metodista as it turns out.

In 1915 Everbody's Theatre opened on this site in Cathedral Square. It was remodelled in Art Deco style in 1934 by Cecil Wood with input from Paul Pascoe. This is when it took on the Tivoli name. From the 1970s it was known as the Westend Theatre but the Tivoli name remained intact under alterations dating from that time but it remerged after some TLC to shine brightly for the final few years of the old theatre's life.

Yesterday we when in search of a factory we had heard about in Gormandale. As we approached the village there was no doubt that the old Gormandale Co-Op Butter Factory Co Ltd was the building we had heard about.
It was raining but I jumped out and started taking photos quickly attracting the attention of the owner. He told us that the factory had been built in 1947 and was the first fully automated butter factory in Australia.
The owner showed us around inside but there wasn't really any deco features left and he told us the butter factory had closed in the mid 1970s.
