Pineapples & Pears ........




Sitting atop of the decorative facade to the city's original
 East-End Whole-sale Markets is a set of ornate fruit bowls

This structure now forms part of a new prestige
appartment development known as "Garden East"
and so it's a touch of the old with the new.

This is quaint, I don't think that I've passed by this market you speak of. I stick to the Central Market which is in walking distance. Have a wonderful day Dianne!

Looking above general eye level brings some great isights. Often when driving dow a shopping strip, I will look above the shop verandah.
You'll sometimes see a previous history of the building.

They don't build decorations like this nowadays. Nice one.

It would have been perfect when it was the markets and it's still perfect now because it's such a classic! Love the composition Dianne with the roof detail.
