dc.description.abstractView of a seating area adjacent to a private lounge and opening off a staircase. The room's carpet has a bold fernleaf pattern and the furniture includes sofas, padded chairs with armrests and small tables. Upholstery is probably vinyl. The room is lit by hanging bud shaped lights and is decorated with mirror tiles, a number of flower arrangements and a potted palm. The Clarendon Hotel was purchased by Tooth & Company in September 1934 and sold in August 1985. On completion of rebuilding in January 1943 the hotel was a three storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and an asbestos and malthoid roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
