The Tivoli Club..



Can you believe that after almost five years of PDP'ing I've just discovered that we have an Art Deco Society in Perth. I have a bit of a passion for the period 1920-1940, books written about this time, the clothes, the architecture, Art Deco j'adore! Take a look at the quite extensive list of buildings of this style around the city, a few you have seen on the blog, but many more for me to find and snap. The Tivoli Club housed in the Applecross District Hall, built in 1934, is Perth's only 'non-professional theatre that produces a variety/cabaret show all year round'.. investigation into the interior is required :) I hope the City of Melville are looking after this treasure, it looks like a little amour is needed on the exterior. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  2. Sadly, I think there are all too many old places that could use some improvement and I do hope that happens for all of them! It's sad to let places like this deteriorate!! Great capture and post for the day, as always, Grace!! I hope your new week is off to a great start!! Enjoy!!

  3. In Lisbon, Tivoli is a fine hotel and also a wonderful theatre, both on the same ave. As to Art Deco, I think you know how much I love it. :-)

  7. Art deco is wonderful. This building seems a little unusual but there is no doubting its style. Look forward to seeing more art deco treasures.

  12. Simply charming. These views don't heel haut Art Deco, though, not in the sense of the voluptuous buildings of Vienna and Prague. There's a bit of Greco-Roman, a bit of Mesopotamian and maybe a dash of our Southwestern Pueblo style. I hope it is preserved.

  13. It is quite a charming place. Bob Crowe perhaps knows more about Art Deco than I do, but it sure passes muster with me.

  18. One of the things I love about blogging is how much I learn about the rest of the world AND what I discover about my own! I also find Art Deco architecture very appealing.

  20. I knew BYO, but "& Glasses" is new to me, Grace! Ingo´d say that´s not a place for me then, since I´ve sadly killed many a glass...

  21. Whatever else one can say, I think this is a very unique and attractive building. I'm with you in being fascinated by the 1920s and 1930s but I'd include the 1940s which I lived through...
