A talk presented by Roy Lumby:
From the beginning, Sydney was the commercial hub of New South Wales – headquarters to banking, commerce and the insurance industry.
Purpose designed buildings emerged where public transactions took place. expressing an image of how each business wished to be perceived and bolstering the architectural pretensions of the city.
This paper examines how and when this architectural typology emerged how it evolved from times of boom and bust into the second half of the twentieth century, and the contribution it made to the appearance and self-esteem of the City of Sydney.
