About

Hello there, thank you for visiting my blog. I’m Sabrina, ex-Woolies office employee and a bit of a Woolworths nut basically.

I’ve always been obsessed with Woolworths, ever since I can remember, and today I am still fascinated by Woolworths buildings – the iconic architecture, the way they are present in nearly every high street and how you can almost always recognise a Woolies building, even now with the chain not existing anymore. I’m often searching the internet for old pictures and it’s quite hard work, like being a detective. So I thought it would be useful to create a website where you can easily find all the pictures for a particular store in one place.  That’s what this blog is about. Of course I will reference the source of each photo that I have not actually taken, don’t want to take the glory for other people’s work!

You may remember my facebook group ‘Mission: To get a picture of every single Woolworths before they close down’, from December 2008, where the amazing general public helped me get 724 photos of Woolworths stores across the country http://www.facebook.com/groups/16527599995

Well now 5 years on, it’s a good time to put those photos to use. I’m going to start with the stores that I knew well and work from there. Please feel free to comment on any posts with your memories, and follow me on twitter:
