Staying in North Perth, here is an example of the architectural mix in this suburb.
Next to each other are a turn of the century shop, now split in two and a 1930’s/1940’s art deco office.
Needless to say, within a minute of taking the photo I was deep inside the bookstore. An absolute rabbit warren of books on shelves which were mostly hidden by six foot high stacks of books rising from the floor. Other than having to navigate the rows of books sideways and in fear of being buried in a sudden book-fall I was in a bibliophilic heaven.
