It's here! A stylish celebration of Sydney's diverse and historic electrical substations.

Clearly depicted in chronological order are the many styles architects utilised during the 20th Century: Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Mediterranean, Stripped Classical and Art Deco. You'll find gems from Alexandria, Bondi, Botany, Croydon, Dulwich Hill, Marrickville, Petersham, Redfern, Rose Bay, Vaucluse, Waterloo and more.

The line illustrations were lovingly created after many pilgrimages across the city and 'burbs. They were then brought together in this homage to the classic cosmopolitan print.

This print could become a talking point of any urban living room. It would make a unique gift for the history or architecture buff.

Not too big and not too small: 500mm high x 400mm wide.

Goes straight into a range of IKEA frames!

Wow! Absolutely love the colours, how crisp the lines look and the fact it was so easy to find a frame to fit it perfectly! My husband is going to be thrilled when he opens it on Christmas! I love your work (been an Instagram follower for ages), so happy to have one of your prints in our house! Thank you!

Polite and professional seller who responds quickly. Beautiful unique design with great detail, looks so lovely in our toddler's room. Easy A3 sizing so no need for expensive custom framing. ❤👼🚂
