As I took pictures, two men passing by told me about this building. "Quite a history, there. The girls would stand on the balconies and display their wares."
Beautiful building! And I love it when I'm taking a picture of a place and someone stops and tells me its history. Doesn't happen often enough though!
Thanks, Pamela. Yes, I love it, too! You're right, it rarely happens and I think people feel they might be interfering. Many old buildings in Sydney had a New Orleans flavor because of the ironwork.
Love the architecture!
It was really fun to see.
Nice shot, even without girls standing on the balconies !
Thank you, Fabio. I'm glad the men happened to pass by, I would never have guessed the original purpose of this building!
beautiful building... and very interesting story.

Interesting, indeed, Luis! Gracias!
