Kardomah Cafe' Sydney

Calling the antipodes!

Does anybody have a view as what year this might be???????

80-84 Oxford Street

Right next to the Union Bank is the Oxford Branch of the Savings Bank of New South Wales. This is the third bank along this block, and it’s not the last! This late Victorian building, with vermiculated stone details and urns atop the pediment, was erected in 1882. The bank manager is Mr A. J. Clarke. The Kardomah CafĂ© at 82-84 Oxford Street is run by Miss Robinson. A small business is also running out of number 82. A lady is about to enter the shop. Perhaps she was attracted by the sign above the window display proclaiming “Hats! Hats! Hats!!! Big Bargains”.
