Summary The Tooths Standard Brewery occupied the Centennial Plaza site on Elizabeth St from 1875.
The 5storey / 80ft brewery tower was tallest building in Sydney .
In 1881 it was first building in Sydney to house a passenger lift which was donated from the ill-fated garden palace.
Above- a view of the brewery down Eddy Avenue (1950s). I love the way that buildings used to fly the Union Jack back then.
I remember some of those green buses were still in service in 1980.
Above- the same view a year later as they tear up the tram tracks.
