AWA Deco

A week back I visited the fabulous Art Deco exhibition in Melbourne, which opened my eyes to the many examples of the genre that still remain in our cityscapes. I found this fine example in Carrington St, Sydney, near Wynyard Station. AWA (Amalgamated Wireless Australasia) was a leading electrical & electronics innovator and manufacturer, dating back to 1913.
Nowadays, the AWA acronym is mostly associated with the former Howard government's much loathed, Australian Workplace Agreements.
