42 AND 46 STATION STREET
On the west side of Station Street are two former banks.
The fi rst one, at 42 Station Street, is the former State Savings
Bank, or SSB, as it was known. Designed in a Federation Free
Classical Style, the facade expresses a post and lintel structure
using pilasters to divide it into three equal bays, with round
arched openings on the ground fl oor and rectangular openings
on the fi rst fl oor. The parapet is composed of an open balustrade
with urns at each end.
The second one, at 46 Station Street, is the former National
Bank. It is in a bold Inter-War Free Classical style. The large and
imposing parapet has not been changed but, at pedestrian level,
a large plate glass window has been introduced.
