Stepping back in time

In a section of the city blocked off from traffic where people meandered from one shop to the next or lounged at cafes clustered in the middle of the mall, sat the Brisbane Arcade.

It may have had a couple of unique shops, but my interest was drawn to the style of the old building preserved with it’s lead lighting façade both priceless and tasteful. I hope it never changes.

  1. I had a shop in the Brisbane Arcade for 20 years. For many years the idiots who ran the Arcade made new tennants rip out the lead light and make new facades. Then the next lot wanted it put back in.
