Lawlor, Thomas Joseph, 1882-1960, photographer.
1 photoprint : b&w ; 21 x 16 cm.
One of 6 photographs of the former Sydney Mint included in an album labelled : 'Burdekin House / Elizabeth Bay House / The Mint. Old Sydney / 1933-35'. This photograph captioned under the image: "Stiarway The Old Mint".
The Mint (Sydney, N.S.W.)
This photograph shows the entrance stairs to one of the buildings at the rear of the Mint site, near Hospital Road. These three buildings were constructed around 1870 to provide staff offices and accommodation. They were demolished in 1952 to make way for the law courts building that remains on the site today. These stairs appear to have been a favourite subject for photographers working in Sydney around 1930 for they appear in several photographs published in newpapers of the time.
