    Great to see this building gaining some recognition – it remains one of Fitzroy’s interwar gems (becoming rarer now that the Penfolds factory has been demolished). Incidentally, the replacement building was cited as “an icon that will indicate the entry to Fitzroy” during the battle to preserve the old building.
