Ridley Smith, 2009, by Ramon WilliamsThere will be a Thanksgiving service for Ridley Smith at St. Andrew’s Cathedral at 10:30am on Friday 3rd January 2014.

Ridley, who died just before Christmas, is best known to many as the Architect who designed St. Andrew’s House and Sydney Square.

We also have Ridley Smith to thank for perpetuating the “Eternity” symbol chalked around Sydney by Arthur Stace for so many years.

Eternity - in Sydney ArcadeIn 1977, he had Eternity, in cast aluminium letters eight inches high, set in pebbles at the bottom of the Sydney Square waterfall.
