Other details include chromed edgings and fixtures, a streamline-edged band of bowl shaped lights that runs immediately above the bar, two cash registers, an octagonal clock, vases of daffodils and a figurine of an elephant on top of a shelf. The Bondi Junction Hotel was built by Tooth & Company Limited after the license was transferred from the Queens Hotel, Woollahra in December 1941. On completion in 1942 the hotel was a three storeyed brick structure with a fully tiled ground floor exterior and a tile and concrete roof. The architectural style is known as P. & O. Ship Style because of its similarities to ocean liner forms.
