Art Deco 02

“The Centennial Milk Bar is the iconic art deco building in Ranfurly. In its heyday it was a bustling place serving hungry passengers from the trains and afternoon teas and icecreams to the locals.” ~from || Continuing Art Deco 01 that I posted yesterday, this is the main building that fronts the back yard I showed in that post.

These “Refreshment Rooms” are right next-door to what was the railway station, a nice building with a spacious lawn between the station and the town’s main street (photos to come).

  1. Wow, what a beauty and you have to love “Refreshment Rooms!” Who wouldn’t want to see that getting off the train! Your first image with the reflection in that rounded window is especially neat. The standing light fixture is quite a work of art, too and that letterbox/birdhouse/spider home is quite interesting.
