Mid century in a city lane

Repost this day 2019 :

The delightful #SapphireHouse, in #CrossleyStreet. Not protected until 2016 when #BourkeHill #heritageprecinct was reviewed. Built 1957 for the #Hurwitz family jewellers and traders, with the ground floor rented to Pellegrinis until the 90s as a larger (more expensive) serve yourself affair. The building hasn’t changed, entry looks original too, including #terrazzo, timber and the lights ! Great #doorknob, depicting the tools of the jewellery trade. Architect not known, though if anyone knows the Hurwitz’s, ask them !
