(The Henry Bull & Co Building was erected on the corner of Market and York Streets in the city in 1904. Beautifully crafted with an Edwardian style facade, it was one of the tallest buildings in Sydney at the time - only the 56 metre Hotel Australia was taller. It was built with 6 storeys to a height of 53 metres to its corner copper cupola - a water turret - which emulated the dome of the Queen Victoria Building across the road. In 1913, during a renovations, it had 4 floors added to take it to the 45m height limit in place.
Like many warehouse buildings of its era, the Henry Bull Building was timber frames with a crafted stone base and brick and stone facework non the upper levels. Twin stone kangaroos stood over the corner entrance. The building was demolished in 1972 to make way for St Martins Tower.
Henry Bull & Co. was incorporated as a limited liability company of 28 Milton Street, London, UK. as Australian merchants and manufacturers of flannels and blankets at the Challenge Mills, Liverpool NSW. The mill was established by Henry Bull & Co on the site of the paper mill of Collingwood Paper Works. It remained operational until 1975. Part of the old Challenge Woollen Mill still exists on Shepherd Street, Liverpool.
