This is 58-60 Queen Street, Auckland. It was original built in 1936 but in recent years has been transformed into a hotel. When I took these photos a couple of years ago it was the Park Regis but it has since become the Grand Windsor Hotel.
The Regent Theatre in Deniliquin probably wasn't that flashy when it opened in 1956 and there is no way that is going to change with the current tenants, the Deni Baptist Church. But even on that simple façade there is the hint of deco with the 'rule of three' employed for the placement of the square windows and the small vents below.
Bulolo Flats in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley were named after the Bulolo Goldfields in Papua New Guinea. Designed by architects Hennessy & Hennessy they were built in 1934 as residential flats for single young women who worked at the department store of building owner T C Beirne.

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 email@example.com if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
