Bebarfalds Department Store Clock

c1910. Wall clock with colour lithograph face and hand-painted numerals, 25cm (diameter). Perforation to lithograph face, slight foxing, scuffing to glass.

Text includes “B. Bebarfald & Co. Ltd. Bebarfalds complete house furnishers. Made in Baden.” Bebarfalds, which opened its Sydney store in 1872, was a retailer of home furnishings and manufacturer of furniture. It traded for many years from its “landmark location opposite the Sydney Town Hall” on the corner of Park Street and 536–538 George Street, Sydney. The building underwent several changes, first in 1908 when it was demolished to make way for a new four-storey building, designed by architect John Burcham Clamp (1869–1931), as depicted on the face of this clock. The site is currently occupied by Woolworths. Ref: SLM, Dictionary of Sydney, City of Sydney archives.
