Queen Victoria Building, Sydney



While in Sydney we went shopping in this gorgeous building - the Queen Victoria Building. It is absolutely beautiful. Inside and out!



Check out the elevator!





And the clocks!





And the stained glass and ceiling.



But most of all - the floors!

I'm so glad you got to go there, it has some amazing architechtural details. I wonder if you went to the top to see the hand carved jade carriage.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who takes pictures of floors! Victorian tiles always have inspirational patterns.

beautiful! I think one of the reasons why I love tile work and stained glass is because of how similar the look is to quilting.
