Artist's Description

The Alexander Buildings in Mt Lawley, Western Australia, were originally what is known as ‘Federation’-style (referring to the period after Australian Federation in January 1901) but received an art-deco makeover in 1938.

It is a landmark at the important intersection of Walcott and Beaufort Streets. Simon Alexander was responsible for the design and construction of the Broadway Building and his son was responsible for its adaptation into the Alexander Buildings. The history, form, style and landmark qualities of the Alexander Buildings complement the Lyceum Buildings opposite, now the Astor Cinema, also designed, developed and adapted by Simon and John Alexander.

Listed on both the WA State Heritage Register and the Town of Vincent Municipal Heritage Inventory.

Original photo had three mobile phone towers on the roof – since digitally removed in Photoshop Elements 6.
