Architectural Ornament

These are a few photos from my ramble around Sydney. I became quite obsessed with photographing these little details - they're everywhere if you look. I do have problems with the style - most of these buildings are built around 1850ish so what is this style? Neo-Greek? Very flourishy.

A few things like this are really making me look at a lot of historical ornamental design. I think it was sparked by reading some of Lacroix's historical influences..
