Bakers Club, Swan Street

Former Bakers Club, Swan Street. (c) googlemaps.

In what today is the shady Cloud 9 brothel was once the Bakers Club on Swan Street.  While there used to be a Co-Operative Wholesale Society Green Fruit warehouse to the rear, the bakery link is less obvious.  From right to left from the old Bakers Club looking down towards Victoria these buildings were once a tailor, cigar warehouse, radio & electrical sundries and bank.  In the space at the side of the Bakers Club was a fruit warehouse and then auction rooms [1].  There was another club on Swan Street somewhere called The Graphic, so there is a chance it could have been in these premises.
