Local Kensington identity James Wales certainly made a statement with this, his home combined with the office for his business, the #KensingtonPropertyExchange, plus attached shophouse, designed by E Owen Hughes. Somehow it’s all survived intact, never painted, never altered, even the shopfront is intact. Very much of the #landboom eta, in fact by the time it was finished in 1892, the boom had bust.
#SmokeHaze ! Happened to go past the 1892 #KensingtonPropertyExchange again yesterday, and it looked quite spooky about 8pm I guess from the bushfire smoke 😱
