Nice building to photo.

Nothing spectacular, but a nice photo nonetheless for architecture enthusiasts. Adelaide has done a fabulous job of keeping many of their older buildings and this is one of them.

Waiting to cross into Rundle Mall I looked up and saw Beehive Corner and looking up further got a pleasant surprise at the top of the building. Try itl.

This is a popular landmark and meeting place for people, in the past more so perhaps than today, when there are many more popular places in town. Haighs Chocolates can be bought here, an excellent quality and great variety, suitable for small occasional gifts or more substantial ones, especially for people who claim to have a 'sweet tooth'. It's at... More

This is a busy area with Haighs Chocolates store on the corner. A must visit to taste the chocolates and purchase for family and friends. It is a lovely building and can be appreciated from across the road. There are plenty of shops to browse and to pick up souveniers.

Interesting architecture with Haigh's chocolates on the ground floor. Need to view from across the road to appreciate its facade.
