At 25 Garnet Street we are amazed with a giant brick Radio. Radio Station 2BH Broken Hill has modeled its building on an antique, cathedral style, Philips radio, probably 1930's, complete with the Philips logo. The four round windows at the base, representing the radio knobs are labeled On-Off, Tone, Tuning and Volume. 2BH commenced in Broken Hill in 1934 and moved into the Garnet Street building in 1990.

The Syndicate of Seven at the Council Offices
We listen as Chris relates the tale of the Syndicate of Seven, the men who in 1885 formed the Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited (BHP) and who are the beginning of the Broken Hill story. Sculptures of the men take pride of place in front of the Broken Hill Council Chambers on the corner of Sulphide and Blende Streets.
