Why was this historic Art Deco not accepted for grainy photo
Does this seem right? And the nomination says as it seems to be taken from a car. ARGH
Taking photos of this building is so hard at 11 stories tall.
I think I will go for an interior photo next.
Anyway any ideas anyone..... And yes I am gobsmacked it does not yet exist as a POI. I was full on expecting duplcation. That would have made sense ;-)

This is a unique building in both NSW and Australia. It is a great place to explore with public access through the art deco lobby. There are numerous cafes, bars and services located downstairs which provide loads of social sharing spaces. One of its heritage listing includes - historic place to socialise. It is on the Sydney Walk tour route if exercise with discovery is your thing.
