Waterfall Art Deco House and Appartment Building
While researching 1940s Annandale: A Short Walk, I came across the 1940s sales plan for part of the site of the original Hunter Baillie Manse. At the time, the house at 80 Johnston Street, was on the market and the owners allowed me to photograph the interior on the eve of its auction.
The house had a few Waterfall Art Deco features such as light coloured and curved bricks, a curved corner window and a curved edged linen cupboard and other more general Art Deco touches in the window and door finishes. The glass pannelled doors all featured the same combination of contrasting glass. - Marghanita da Cruz, 22 July 2016.

They certainly do - they fixed a 1992 Sony Discman, cables on a popcorn maker, hair straighteners and lamps. They thought the electrical bush in the metal and bakelite Sunbeam mixer might be the cause of its woes.
