Ingham - Red & Green Art Deco Building

Ingham is located between Townsville and Cairns and it's sprawling main street has many interesting examples of Art Deco and Post War designs. It's a town that's not been promoted on it's Modernist credentials, but if you take the time to walk it's streets there are many wonderful examples to be found.

This example is located on the main street, but is tucked away to the side of the main shop, so it's often difficult to see if driving by. It's striking with it's use of red brick and green painted balustrades. Notice how the balustrade to the right curves right on into the concrete, and the curves at the top of the building. What a wonderful flowing design!
