Sketching Architecture - Week 2

Back to one of Sydney's quaintest historical suburbs - The Rocks. Week 2 of Liz Steel's course had us admiring various shop fronts along George Street. I chose this one for its worn looking façade and charm.

 Built in 1856 in the Victorian Regency style, 103 George Street is significant in that it has maintained its use as both a shop and residence until this day. A faint trace of the words 'Boarding House' could be seen on the façade, but unfortunately I couldn’t find any historical reference for the large number ‘6’. The shop below has been remodelled over time and currently exists as Ariel Booksellers.
