The Kerosene Store, built 1884 of stone rubble on reclaimed land at a safe enough distance from other buildings and yet close enough to the wharf for delivery of kerosene. Kerosene was a major lighting fuel in the 19th century until it was replaced by gas and then electricity. Later used as a storage facility and an artist's studio until restoration.
Restored in the 1980s, now houses artists and exhibitions.
It's a fabulous heritage building and I'm pleased it's been restored for all.
I must return to view the latest exhibition.
A beautiful day with some warmth coming through the next couple of days. Yay!
