The Strand Arcade, Sydney

Built in 1890 this Victorian style retail arcade is in the heart of central Sydney. It’s quieter and more picturesque than the nearby Queen Victoria Building. One thing that stands out to me the most is the shop signage. No big red SALE signs. No huge shop brand logos. Simple small signs above each shop front. Helped by the ornate cast iron and carved balustrades, and timber framed shopfronts. It did take some time to compose this photograph to be as symmetrical as possible.
