Abstract

ln 20l6 Circular Quay Railway Station turned 60 years old. On its opening the railway station was an expression of Sydney's modernity with many features of Sydney modernism including Art Deco decorative ornamentation of grilles and bronze aquatic animal motifs placed near stairways and doorways. The station had a modern design with clean lines on the floor and ceiling, wrought iron balustrading on the walls, and escalators.
