Sad news /Good news

A New York Deco icon falls victim to the recession

www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/new-yorks-rainbow-room-falls-victim-to-the-recession-1299687.html

Rather ironic that it was born in hard times...

In other news, Im 'restoring' a clunky, junked about old dresser Ive had for years. Buried under 10 layers of hideous paint was this!



Motto? Even if its damaged and seems worthless, it might be worth your while trying to save it! Now I just need to find some bakelite handles...

Happy new year! The ADS Adelaide local chapter has some exciting events planned for 2009. I'll post some news shortly...

A great local blog to bookmark, and a visual question....

Hi all,

No doubt most of you will be aware of the planning review currently being undertaken by the state government. Rather than get too political here, lets just say that the outcome of this review WILL influence the survival of many mid 20th century houses and commercial buildings in Adelaide. Rather than say any more here, let me direct you to:

Now to the question. Morialta Conservation park in the Adelaide foothills is a beautiful park with a strong early-mid 20th century history. The entrance gate pillar must date from the 30s or 40s[?] and the sign itself, in beautiful deco lettering has recently been upgraded. The sign has been there for many years - question is, was it just cleaned or was it replaced with a new sign? Either way its an elegant thing...

Up and running!

Hey deco-philes!

This is the community journal and 'home base' of the Adelaide chapter of the Art Deco Society. The local chapter will use this as a diary and bulletin board for any Deco related news, and especially for upcoming society events. However this is your journal, so once we have this up and running properly, feel free to post and let everyone know about anything of Deco interest!
