Queen Victoria Building

6th installment of Sydney, August 11, 2015

The Queen Victoria Building is an imposing edifice in Sydney. At one time it was a produce market which is why the floors are slanted to allow for washing. It was empty for a long time and the council had no funds to do anything with it. A Malaysian company invested in it and restored it for use as a shopping Mall. It is filled with lots of high end shops and has lovely places to eat. I thoroughly enjoyed window shopping. We stopped and ate a fancy baked potato and coffee while sitting at the balcony overlooking the shoppers on the other floors. One of the main features is its magnificent clock. Outside is a stature of Queen Victoria and a rather kitsch fountain that has a talking dog asking for money for charity.
