During World War II, 64 Chapel Road, Marrickville was the home of the Marrickville Ordance Store No 1.

It was a unit of the 2nd Central Ordance Department.

The Australian War Memorial image collection includes exterior and interior pictures of the property.

The windows have been boarded up and the paint is probably much brighter, but the building has not changed much. Today it houses Kennards Self Storage.
