Broadway, Grace Brothers department store, clock tower


This clock tower and globe lamp are part of the former Grace Brothers department store along Broadway, in the inner city suburb of Glebe. It was built in 1904 in the Federation/Edwardian architectural style as the flagship building of the department store and a matching building across the road was completed in 1923. Grace Bros vacated the Broadway store in 1992 and these buildings were restored and redeveloped in 1998. This building became part of The Broadway Shopping Centre, a shopping mall with retail space, cinemas, restaurants and car park.
