So after I popped into Max Factor for some new Pancake, this shop caught my eye, as I'd saved a lot of my Robur coupons and those rugs (?) looked rather appealing.

Or I could stop in for a cup of tea at the Robur cafe:
But I doubt I'll see the elephant today:
But you never know:
Apparently he's fond of a cuppa:

Now this one makes me want to go and buy some makeup. Not like today's scary make up counters with their intimidating orange faced ladies or the self-serve section at the local K-Mart, where you're more like to find Max these days. Max Factor cosmetics, Her Majesty's Arcade, Sydney. I'm not familiar with Sydney at all, so I wonder if the store front still looks similar? Anyone know? I love the Moderne styling!
The advertising in this window is a film tie-in. The musical 'Ziegfeld Girl' was released in the US in 1941 and starred James Stewart, Hedy Lamarr, Judy Garland and Lana Turner.
