An Iconic Site

6 The Corso –

“Of local significance, the Manly Emporium is a relatively intact example of an early 20th century department store of which no other distinct examples remain in the vicinity. It reflects the later development of the south side of The Corso and is associated with the growth of Manly as a suburb. Designed in the Federation Free style, it has a strong street presence and contributes to the overall cultural heritage significance and character of The Corso.” State Heritage Inventory.

50 East Esplanade –

“One of the earliest allotments to be sold on the south of The Corso, originally designated as Victoria Park in HG Smith’s plan for Brighton. The building is a remnant example of early 20th century development along the East Esplanade and a good and relatively intact example of a Federation Arts and Crafts style commercial/residential building, constructed close to the ferry wharf and the newly arrived tram service. The building is an important element in the streetscape and contributes to the overall significance of the Town Centre Conservation Area.” State Heritage Inventory
