Connecting the Precinct
'The Balmain Observer' goes inside the Post Office and Court House and takes us on a tour of the original building before it was opened. Explaining in detail the fittings both upstairs and down. An amazing observation from over 100years ago.
Do you ever wonder what happened to the Town Hall cupola. Mark Calabretta takes us on a historical mystery tour of how the Town Hall lost its ‘head’. An amazing piece of historical research that will excite historians and the casual on lookers alike.
What makes the Court House and Town Hall of interest is the work being planned by the Inner West Council to revamp the area between these two buildings making a precinct that all the Balmain locals will be proud of.
Also on show will be a history of Mr Deloitte’s Wharf Road Orchid House with a display of orchids to match.
