One of Nowra's most recognisable buildings is no more.
What was originally the Pizza Hut building in the southern end of Kinghorn Street has been demolished.
The Pizza Hut building, with its iconic red roof, opened in the mid-1970s, bringing to Nowra high excitement and was one of the first restaurant chains to come to the area.
It was so recognisable with its original red-coloured, steep shaped roof.
It went from just serving pizza to the popular all-you-can-eat slices, salads and desserts!
There wouldn't be too many locals who hadn't indulged in an eating competition there at one stage or another.
There are even stories of extra pizza being "stashed in jackets on the way out" to be eaten later.
On the Shoalhaven in the 20th Century Facebook page we've found a photograph of the building and newspaper advertisement dated 1976.
In the mid to late 1990s the business relocated into the Nowra CBD.
Since then the building has been reincarnated on a couple of occasions as restaurants, including the popular Trevi Fountain.
Local firm Jirgens Civil has demolished the building over the past two weeks.
In recent years the building has sat vacant and has become the target of vandals and suffered fire damage.
Pizza Hut launched in Australia in 1970, with the first Australian Pizza Hut opened in Belfield, Sydney in April 1970.
According to Richard S Cooper-Smith, who commented on the Shoalhaven in the 20th Century Facebook page, the Nowra building was constructed by Nowra builder M.J.Davidson,
"I was an apprentice working for the company, I remember myself and the site foreman Alan Kimpton, putting up the top part of the roof in the rain - no health and safety then," he posted.
The building has been demolished to make way for a multi-dwelling housing development containing 15 dwellings.
