Facade of the Friendly Societies House - Elizabeth Street, Melbourne

Facade of the Friendly Societies House - Elizabeth Street, Melbourne

Built in 1901, the beautiful Art Nouveau decorated Friendly Societies House is located at 55 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne.

The building was originally only two storeys high, but later had an additional three storeys added. The front is very ornate, featuring blue grey tiles on the walls and terracotta tile window surrounds. Perhpas its most impressive feature is the central bay window on the second storey, and the sets of tall arched windows that flank it on either side. Built in the Edwardian period in Art Nouveau style, it also features mannerist design as well.

The Friendly Societies House was designed by architect Nahum Barnet who also designed; Her Majesty's Theatre on Exhibition Street in 1886, The Paton Building on Elizabeth Street in 1905, The Auditorium on Collins Street in 1912 and Alston's Corner on the corner of Elizabeth and Swanston Streets in 1913 amongst other buildings across Melbourne's inner city and central business district.

The Fat Lady Bistro, Oakland

The Fat Lady Bistro, Oakland

The Fat Lady is known as one of Oakland's finest lunch and dinner houses.
We can accommodate private as well as semi-private banquet rooms. Formerly a brothel, The Fat Lady offers an ambiance that is warm, intimate and unique to the Bay Area.

A Family Tradition
"There is a uniqueness to the Fat Lady as it is a family owned business in the day of chains and franchised restaurants. Not only is it family owned and operated, but our customers become family. In fact, those of us who know and love us call the Fat Lady their second home!"
--Patricia Rossi

The Fat Lady Bar and Restaurant first opened its doors on May 14, 1970. It was the creation of Louis and Patricia Shaterian, who, along with their three daughters, Patricia, Karen, and Cori, started this family tradition. The current owners are Jerry and Patricia Rossi. The third generation, Lisa, Nicole, and Stephen are now taking their places in this family tradition.

Here's Our Story...The first thing you notice when you walk inside the Fat Lady is the Victorian decor. Eye catching Tiffany lamps, beveled glass doors, bentwood chairs, beautiful stained and leaded glass signs, and the other delightful collectibles work their magic to take you back to another place and time. The result is a relaxing and fun atmosphere

Still there is more than meets the eye...Every piece of memorabilia has a story. If you're sitting at the bar and ask, the bartender might tell you that the back bar originally came from around the horn at the turn of the century and in more recent history from Mike's Pool Hall of San Francisco. The bartender might also point out the exit sign that was purchased from San Francisco's classic Fox Theatre when it was torn down years ago. Other antique signs came from the old breweries.

Why the Fat Lady? People always ask, "How did the Fat Lady get its name?" Well, there are two stories. Fact and legend. Fact has it that when Louis Shaterian owned the original Overland House, a superior court judge told him about a nude painting his son had painted of a pleasingly plump lady. This aroused Lou's curiosity. He was taken to view the painting and upon seeing it, decided it was definitely unique but he wasn't quite sure what to do with it. The judge suggested it should hang in the new restaurant Lou and his wife, Patricia, were about to open and thus became the namesake of the Fat Lady Bar and Restaurant. Now maybe this story is too mundane so we've created a legend. Factual history has it that the Fat Lady building (built in 1884) was once a house of ill repute and who could have been its madame? Our very own Fat Lady, of course! Rumors also say that Jack London slept here. Considering he lived within walking distance, maybe...just maybe he did know the infamous Fat Lady. We'll let you decide. In the meantime, remember.

"It isn't over 'til the Fat Lady sings!"

Wollaton Hall

Wollaton Hall

Wollaton Hall is a country house standing on a small but prominent hill in Wollaton, Nottingham, England. Wollaton Park is the area of parkland that the stately house stands in. The house itself is a natural history museum, with other museums in the out-buildings. The surrounding land is regularly used for large scale outdoor events such as rock concerts and festivals.

In 2011, key scenes from the blockbuster Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, were filmed there. The hall will feature as the latest Wayne Manor.

Wollaton Hall was built between 1580 and 1588 for Sir Francis Willoughby and is believed to be designed by the Elizabethan architect, Robert Smythson, who was the architect of Hardwick Hall. The style is Elizabethan with early Jacobean elements. The floor plan has been said to derive from Serlio's drawing (in Book III of his Five Books of Architecture) of Giuliano da Majano's Villa Poggio Reale near Naples of the late fifteenth century, with elevations derived from Hans Vredeman de Vries. The architectural historian Mark Girouard has suggested that the design is in fact derived from Nikolaus de Lyra's reconstruction, and Josephus's description, of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem, with a more direct inspiration being the mid-sixteenth century Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall, which Smythson knew. The building is of Ancaster stone from Lincolnshire, and is said to have been paid for with coal from the Wollaton pits owned by Willoughby. Cassandra Willoughby, Duchess of Chandos recorded in 1702 that the master masons, and some of the statuary, were brought from Italy. The decorative but ludicrous gondola mooring rings carved in stone on the exterior walls offer some evidence of this, as do other architectural features. There are also obvious French and Dutch influences.

The building consists of a high central hall, surrounded by four towers. Unfortunately, a fire caused damage to Smythson's interior decoration of some of the ground floor rooms, but little structural damage occurred. Remodelling was carried out by Wyattville in 1801 and continued intermittently until the 1830s.

The gallery of the main hall contains Nottinghamshire's oldest pipe organ, thought to date from the end of the seventeenth century, possibly by the builder Gerard Smith. It is still blown by hand. Paintings on the ceilings and one wall are attributed to Verrio or his assistant Laguerre. Directly over the main hall is a 'prospect room', from which there are extensive views of the Park. Beneath the hall are many cellars and passages, and a well and associated reservoir tank, in which some accounts report that an admiral of the Willoughby family took a daily bath.

The Willoughbys were noted for the number of explorers they produced, most famously Sir Hugh Willoughby who died in the Arctic in 1554 attempting a North East passage to Cathay. Willoughby's Land is named after him.

In 1881, the house was still owned by the head of the Willoughby family, Digby Willoughby, 9th Baron Middleton, but by then it was "too near the smoke and busy activity of a large manufacturing town... now only removed from the borough by a narrow slip of country", so that the previous head of the family, Henry Willoughby, 8th Baron Middleton, had begun to let the house to tenants and in 1881 it was vacant.

The hall reopened in April 2007 after being closed for refurbishment. The prospect room at the top of the house, and the kitchens in the basement, were opened up for the public to visit, though this must be done on one of the escorted tours. The latter can be booked on the day, last about an hour, and a small charge is made.
