    According to this 1890 map of Sydney, those are segregated Baths on the left, where Andrew Boy Charlton Pool is now.

    The modern looking roof at the bottom is the temporary Art Gallery – "Intended to be the foundation of a more substantial building when funds became available, Hunt’s temporary building, which was nothing more than a series of thick walls with a sawtooth roof, was universally disliked. It was denounced in the press by prominent citizens as the ‘Art Barn.’ " http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/aboutus/history/building
