Alecia Tearooms Blackwall Road Woy Woy, built in 1926 according to my hist list. One of very favourite buildings on the Peninsula. It's so nutty.
It faces the railway (50 yards to left of frame) and was designed to catch the eye of passengers as they disembarked, drawing them in with the promise of a nice hot cuppa tea and cream cakes.
This is only half the original building. It used to go right across to Noonan's. To see the whole building go to Gosford & District in Pictures and search "Shops, Blackwall Road, Woy Woy".
That's the (now defunct) Commonwealth Bank on Alecia's left and the lane is a shortcut to the internet cafe and the bottleshop (liquor store).
Albert Hamlyn Warner built the Tearooms and that turretted building opposite Wyong Station and his house Strathavon in Boyce Avenue, Wyong.
Waiting for a storm this afternoon. It's bloody muggy and a nice bit of thunder and lightning would go down a treat.
