Saloon bar in the Bridge Hotel, corner of Victoria Road and Wellington Street, Rozelle, Sydney
|Collections||Tooth & Company Limited|
|Date created:||August 1941|
Two barmaids stand behind a linoleum-topped curved counter. Both the bar and the walls are faced with mottled tiles. The saloon features a linoleum floor laid in a basketweave pattern, chromed edgings and fixtures, cornices and beams decorated with moulded plasterwork, glass brick panels and ceiling lights circled by fluorescent tube rings. Other details include a wall clock, potted palms and vases of flowers. The Bridge Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in January 1926. On completion of rebuilding in August 1941 the hotel was a two storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and a roof of corrugated asbestos. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
