Stanley Street South Brisbane

We sketched Historical Clarence Corner this morning. I sat outside the Clarence Corner Hotel, now known as the Brew House. It was named after the Steam Ship Clarence.
Clarence Corner was Brisbanes first Township, and it was quite a large one. In 1893 a devastating flood forced most of the retailers across river to Queen Street.

The cream building is Maggee Draper Emporium formerly Murray and Magee Coupon Drapers.
The black building is Robert Lenehan’s pharmacy at Clarence Corner in 1915.
Sketched in my handmade 8" x 6.5" 90lb sketchbook. Graphite 0 Lamy pen - Watercolour.
