Art Deco Service Station - Casino


Hassell's Service Station in Casino is a unique building in many ways. Not only is it rare to find a Service Station from the late 1930's still in it's original condition but the building itself has some unusual features.


The exterior of the building is clad in pressed metal to resemble brick/stone and two highly unusual Juliet balconies have a shell motif, once again in pressed metal.


My post also celebrates Bastille Day.  Liberté, égalité, fraternité - Vive la France!

  1. A most unusual structure! And it's still in use too I notice! Upstairs appears to be lived in too! So good that this has been preserved!

  7. I have just come back from Wayfaring in your area, including a stopover in Casino. It would have been nice to spend more time in the Clarence Valley but we had a return home deadline. I noticed various places you have featured in your blog.
