  1. Wow small world. The suburb of Bankstown I'm in is Birrong, next to Regents Park. A very small world.
  2. Yes, Amazing. It's a real shame that they did not keep Anthony Horderns building like they did Queen Victoria building. They destroyed a great piece of history.
  3. Hi Zowie, I'm in Bankstown which is south west Sydney. I only needed some help in identifying the age of the Imperial Decanter, not any other pieces, but thank you. Are you a collector of Carnival G...
