This is the third part of a series of photographs taken by RiotACT reader Old Canberran on his Kodak Box Brownie in 1948.
These ones came in with the following note:
- I have attached pics of the original 2CA office at 4 Mort Street and the Civic Theatre at 6 Mort Street. 2 Mort Street (Cnr of Mort and Alinga) used to be the YWCA hostel and gym.
The 2CA studio is where Steve Leibman started work as a radio announcer in later years.
For some who may be old enough to remember, the next block in Mort Street consisted of Freebody’s Garage on the corner opposite the Civic Theatre, the 3 C’s cordial company (later Edwards Dunlop), the Canberra Dry Cleaners which used to be Grant’s Bakery and the Canberra Times Office formerly known as the Federal Capital Press.
