Will The Real Slim Dusty Please Stand Up!

Ever wondered about what goes on in an old building? Or what the history of an old building is? There are so many buildings with historical significance that get knocked down and replaced with modern structures. We sometimes forget what we had.

On the corner of 2 Parramatta Road and Columbia Lane there is still an old building standing with some interesting History. The name Columbia Lane is the first clue.

A long History

The site was originally built in 1921 by Gold’s Hoisery Mills LTD. The building changed hands in 1924 when Gold’s Hoisery went bankrupt. The site was purchased in 1925 by Columbia Gramophone and used as a record pressing plant and recording Studio. They even renamed the lane to Columbia Lane in 1926. The Governor of the time Sir Dudley de Chair officially opened it on the 14th of October 1926.

In 1931 Columbia Gramophone Company was bought out by EMI. It was one of the only recording Studio that survived the great depression and was the only record producer in Australia

A Big Parramatta Bread Factory

Kennards Self Storage proudly supports the heritage and history of the local Parramatta community. Customers will recognise the little heritage cottage on the corner of Una Street, on the property that is our Parramatta Self Storage centre, 105 Wigram Street, Harris Park.

We are excited to be nearly complete with an adaptive reuse of the heritage cottage at this location. The building had suffered from several ills over the years and whilst expensive, it was important to our team at Kennards Storage to keep the building and where we have been able to, bring it back to its former glory. Our construction team are in the final throws of achieving DA permissions for the exterior of the cottage. Our internal rescue and improvements are nearly complete. We are aiming for the launch of this cottage and its exciting new use for sometime in August.

How To Win At Self Isolation

We have all been learning to live with Covid 19. Life is not the same as it was a year ago. We have one eye on getting on with our lives and another on “saving” our lives.
