the Carrington Hotel
established 1882

an old derelict college

the Paragon cafe, restaurant & choclatierie is
a fine example of heritage art-deco decor.
it is still running with all the flapper trappings
of the early 1900's. it's Katoomba's original milk bar.
my sister and i visited this place over 20 years ago
with our parents... and the memory of waffles is strong;
or maybe our memories are better attributed to the maple
syrup, which, due to a momentary laps of parental
inforcement of manners "fit to dine with the queen"
we were allowed to drink the sweet syrup (with a straw).

instead of photographing the waffles i just had to order
in honour of a memory (no syrup drinking this time)i went
out the back of the cafe to capture the old bathrooms
and high tea rooms...
