Astoria Café: Freeleagus Bros’ showpiece

  1. I remember going to the Astoria in Brisbane with my mother on our trips to town, and buying small, dainty ‘afternoon-tea’ type cakes. No one back then called it ‘going into the city’. This was the era when ladies wore pretty dresses, stockings, hats and gloves for their ‘going to town on the tram’ journey and I have no doubt that I would have been an annoying little princess, resplendent in a pastel frilly voile dress with a large bow at the back, ribbons in my hair and white socks and shiny black patent leather shoes.
