Macquarie Street is an elegant tree-lined boulevard adjacent to the commercial city centre and overlooking the Royal Botanic Gardens. It is one of Sydney’s most distinguished residential addresses. Until recent decades it was known as the Harley Street of Sydney due to the presence of a number of medical chambers and surgeries.
The Art Deco BMA Building was built in 1928 and at twelve stories was one of the tallest in Sydney at that time. Today it is dwarfed by tall skyscrapers but its unique facade decorated with gargoyles and tiles in rich and unique designs really make it stand out. The 11th floor balconies have giant medieval knights holding shields to ward off evil.
Sarah works on the 6th floor (or it might be the 5th or 4th) of this building for an investment publishing house. She is assisted in her work by Schnitzel von Krumm.
Dogs are strictly not allowed inside this illustrious establishment so Mr von Krumm is smuggled into the building each day by the MD in a special dog holdall. If anyone steps into the elevator during the ride to and from the 6th floor he responds obediently to a whispered “down Shnitzel” and ducks his head down into the bag.
Buddy would like a job here too but his application will probably be declined as his references are a bit dodgy and he only has experience as a ‘tradie’.
