Mark Foys Oxford Street 1892

 Oxford Street, Sydney, looking east from Hyde Park, 1892.
A interesting photograph.....the “pedestrian only/foot-traffic” area.
In this shot one has a better view of the ‘street-clock’ on the very right side of the photo.
It appears to be a two (or maybe 3) face clock.
The Mark Foy (see-through) sign is also seen in this shot (established on Oxford Street in 1885).
- Mark Foy's Limited or Mark Foy's was a department store in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, founded by Francis Foy (1856?–1918) and his brother Mark Foy (1865–1950). The department store was named after their father, Mark Foy (senior).
