Strand Stories

Behind 125 years of the Strand Arcade is a rich wealth of history, memories and anecdotes. From the past and present community of artisans and craftsmen that have called the Strand Arcade home throughout the years, to the up and coming Australian fashion labels who launched their careers, to everyone who has visited the Arcade throughout the years. We invited you and your friends to share your stories with us.
