Back to Newtown garage


This is another sketch of the Newtown service station on King St and Whitehorse St. This was the first station of the series done in December.  I wasn't quite happy with it and wanted another go.  This time I sketched it from the front, sitting on a bus stop bench.
I am concerned this rare Spanish Mission style service station will be lost to redevelopment.   There is a window missing and other damage which is causing the rain to get in as well as birds.   Graffiti is also present which I have not put in my sketch.   Poor old station, she needs a benefactor.

Below is the first sketch sketched from the corner.
