Sketch club went to Summer Hill today. This inner west suburb of Sydney is rich in Victorian, Edwardian and deco architecture
The Rio Milk bar has been part of Summer Hill for 55 years according to a man who told me the history of the place while I was sketching. It is still open every day selling ice cream, lollies and soft drinks. The passerby told me that the owner is a Greek man who lives upstairs. He owns he building and has had many offers to buy but he declines them all.
