Pizza Hut/Network Video – Petersham, NSW

Don’t let the graffiti, overgrown weeds and the video shop sign fool you – this location is still in operation as a video shop. But it’s a video shop…WITH A SECRET.

Despite being bright purple, you don’t look too out of place, Network Video. You’ve got a disabled ramp there, a big carpark…strange roof you’ve got there, though. Looks like you, uh, added on the part of the building to the right of this picture much later. You know, the part without that…funny looking roof… Anyway, you mind if I have a look around the back?

Gee, that’s a hell of a thing. Your wall there, Network Video…it’s taller than your roof. Now why would you design it like that? And you don’t look so purple back there. It’s brick… Ah, it’s probably nothing. Just my mind playing tricks. Maybe you were a house once, that wouldn’t be so special. Okay, thanks for your time, I’ll get outta your hair. Take it easy.

Oh, just one more thing. Can I have a look around the other side, between the building and the fence?

Aha.

  1. You guys are certainly bringing back memories of a ‘Past Life’… Shortly after leaving the Royal Australian Navy, I found myself starting a second ‘career’ at Pizza Hut Australia (in ’75) as a Trainee Manager, with initial training at Petersham Pizza Hut, (’75, now gone,) then Trainee Manager at Double Bay Pizza Hut (’75, now gone,) Assistant Manager at Beverly Hills Pizza Hut (’75-’76, now gone,) Licensee/ Manager, Liverpool Pizza Hut (Elizabeth Drive, ’76-’77, now gone…) Hard work, but great fun and very fond memories…!
