Many of us have walked past this grand building at Broadway, let's take a closer look. Nowadays it is the Broadway Shopping Centre, but this building was originally the giant and impressive Grace Bros department store. Albert Edward and Joseph Neal Grace migrated from England in the 1880’s and sold goods door-to-door. In 1885, they opened their first small shop in George St City and by 1906, they had opened this five story building at Broadway. The glass and steel globe bearing the company name that topped this building (together with its partner, not erected until 1926) became a symbol of the company, visible from many parts of Sydney and used for decades in advertisements, promotions and company stationery. Grace Bros boasted a store with, among many features, "three and a half acres of furniture"! The Grace auditorium dominated the social life of Sydney with dances, fashion parades, children's events displays and pantomimes held within it. 1954 saw the Royal Visit of Queen Elizabeth II with the Broadway stores extensively decorated. The Grace brothers were among the first to foresee the changing patterns of retail in the city and while Joseph died in 1931 and Albert in 1938, they had already made plans to move their department stores further afield beyond the centre of the city. This ensured the Grace Bros name continued on while rivals such as Anthony Horden's and Mark Foys vanished from the city business landscape. Although Grace Bros brand was sold to Coles Myer in 1983, and the name Grace Bros disappeared to be replaced with Myer, this building stands as a legacy to Joseph Neal and Albert Edward Grace. #sydney #history #travel #gracebros #broadway #georgestreet #city #departmentstore #shop #shopping #architecture #retail #heritage #building #nsw #australia #1906 #visitsydney #ilovesydney #historicsydney

Slot windows now installed in glass house on back wall. Architectural shot of roof looking thru to sky whilst waiting for correct ridge cap to be delivered. Love what we do! Our farm will have a glass house next using windows never used in the piano factory in Annandale. Hubby #handymanpeter was given them whilst he concrete wall sawed the factory which was converted to apartments 20 years ago. I have held onto them for that long waiting for the moment to present itself to create using some history of Sydney. We will also feature our sandstone cores from under Gracebros that hubby extracted 20 years ago. Gracebros at that time was being drilled down to the base of Sydney's soul to build what Meyers is today. #handymanpeter was literally at ground level core drilling to develop it. #glasshouse #handymanpeter #salvagedsouthernhighlands #gracebros #sydneyhistory #coredrill

This big red Melbourne Bitter hat brings back fond memories of heading down south to appear on Hey Hey It’s Saturday in 97’ - went on Red Faces with the boys from the Cessnock B Grade League team, did the full monty to the tune of Boys Light Up, ripped off our king gee trousers to reveal fluro g bangers (inspired by seeing Jamie Durie in Manpower Australia at Club Forster in 92’) had our meat and veg covered up by the faces of the then line up of The Footy Show (Fatty Vautin, Sterlo, Vossy, Mario Fenech) all the judges bloody hated it except Red Symons who gave us 10 didn’t even give us the gong, as a consolation prize got picked to Plucka Duck, spun the wheel around landed on the brand new Toyota Camry but Plucka stitched me up, nudged it forward so it landed on the Grace Brothers linen set, I was absolutely spewin, as soon as they cut to an ad break I spear tackled Plucka, next minute DARYL SOMERS KING HIT ME IN THE BACK OF THE NOGGIN, managed to rip the head off Plucka’s costume in the fray - low and behold it was a young mullet rocking Richard ‘Dickie’ Wilkins entertainment reporter for the Today Show, he later told me he did it for a bit of extra cash on the side (hair extensions aren’t cheap) - we all patched things up and had a massive night at the Crown Casino high rollers Mahogany Room - last thing I remember was necking a longie of Melbourne Bitter out of Molly Meldrum’s hat.

The Sword and The Sorcerer (1982) I remember when my uncle bought this tape home from #gracebros and started collecting #vhs. A mercenary with a three-bladed sword rediscovers his royal heritage's dangerous future when he is recruited to help a princess foil the designs of a brutal tyrant and a powerful sorcerer in conquering a land.

We at The Grace had a lovely surprise letter in the post from one of our guests Leslie Williams. She came across some old receipts from Grace Bros from 1937! One was for £1.30 and the other for £1.12 - we were all so excited to receive this piece of history, along with a lovely handwritten note. These will be in our Heritage Display cabinet in the lift lobby at the Grace Hotel if anyone local wants to come and have a look! #gracebros #thegracehotel #historical #tgh

Looking up at the Grace Bros building. Taking a deep breath before I enter the craziness of Christmas shopping #shopping #gracebros #broadway #sydney #christmas #2017 #summer #beautifullight #architecture #architecturalphotography

Grace Building 77 York St / 1930 / Morrow and Gordon . . The Grace brothers, Albert Edward and Joseph Neal, kicked off their retail enterprise in the 1880s by selling goods door to door throughout Sydney. By the 1920s the firm now known as Grace Bros Ltd was firmly entrenched as one of the city's major retailers and the brothers were looking to construct a new headquarters. Reasoning that the imminent opening of The Sydney Harbour Bridge would direct increasing pedestrian traffic along York and Clarence Streets, a site was purchased in the area in 1926 . Architects Morrow and Gordon were commissioned to design the building, producing a spectacular Skyscraper Gothic structure heavily influenced by the Tribune Tower in Chicago (1925) . Opened by Lord Mayor Alderman ES Marks on 3 July, 1930 the building drew immediate praise for its dramatic appearance and modern amenities including light-filled, well ventilated offices and high speed lifts. Utilising the first two levels as a department store, the remaining floors were to be leased out as office space. This proved difficult, however, due to the economic effects of the Great Depression and failure of increased traffic to the area .

The Grace Building in Sydney's York Street was opened in 1930 as the headquarters for the Grace Brothers department stores. Inspired by the Tribune Tower in Chicago, the building was designed by architects at the firm of Morrow & Gordon in the Art Deco style influenced by neo-Gothic. During the Second World War it served as the Sydney headquarters of the US armed forces under General Douglas MacArthur. Restored in the 1990s, the building is now a luxury hotel. The facade is sheathed in glazed cream terracotta tiles. #sydney #newsouthwales #nsw #australia #sydneycbd #yorkst #yorkstreet #yorkstreetsydney #gracebuilding #gracehotel #gracehotelsydney #artdeco #artdecostyle #artdecodesign #artdecobuilding #neogothic #neogothicstyle #architecture #architectureofsydney #sydneyarchitecture #morrowandgordon #lookingup #1930 #walkinginsydney #discoversydney #cream #terracottatiles #gracebrothers #gracebros #generaldouglasmacarthur
