The Turkish Bath Museum at Mount Wilson, NSW photographed with a Canon 400D at the Redbubble Rumble on Saturday, April 29, 2012.
It was great to catch this great building with some supporting autumn colour.
This unique heritage listed building is situated within the Wynstay Estate at the end of The Avenue, Mount Wilson. It was the one of the first properties to be established in Mount Wilson, as early as 1875, by Mr Richard Wynne who also established the Wynne Landscape & Sculpture Prize in 1895.
The building was in use for a few years for its initial purpose, as a Turkish Bath, but now partly restored it houses a museum of local history operated by the Mt Wilson and Mt Irvine Historical Society.
The building itself is very stylish, featuring many original features including arched windows of stained and hand painted glass. It has exterior walls of polychrome brickwork with Italianate decoration and an elaborate turret with cast iron finials and roof decoration.
The museum regularly holds exhibitions about the history of Mt Wilson and Mt Irvine and its interesting personalities.
This photo has been slightly cropped because of the sloping block it sits on.
